Bilan du colloque. La question de l’interprétation fonctionnelle et économique des bâtiments d’exploitation et des structures de production agro-pastorale

Abstract : The question of the functional and economic interpretation of buildings and real estate structures constituting the operational part of agricultural establishments is not new. It was posited as early as the 19th century, as several authors recall in the Acts of this conference (notably A. Ferdière and P. Leveau). If it gave rise to a conference devoted entirely to this subject – the XIth of the Association of study of the rural gallo-Roman world –, it is that two major evolutions led since the years 1980 and especially 1990 to renew it in depth: – on the one hand, the multiplication of data following the development of preventive archeology, which offers the possibility of constituting series within increasingly large corpora; – on the other hand, the emergence and diffusion of new methods of investigation and, correlatively, the definition of new functional markers, notably stemming from the so-called "hard" sciences, more and more integrated into the archaeological process (geoarchaeology, bioarchaeology , geochemistry). In general, the question also benefits from an increased critical reflexivity of the archaeological discipline, which gives an increasingly important place to the analysis, the understanding and the contextualisation of the processes, either it is about processes of primary constitution of archaeological information (deposition, stratification, post-depositional processes, taphonomy) or socio-economic processes that can be glimpsed and sometimes reconstituted from these data. If the first objective of this colloquium and the publication of its Proceedings is to draw the attention of archaeologists to the importance of the challenge raised by the question posed for the study of the countryside and, more broadly, of the Gallo-Roman economy – the second concerns the need to adapt the methods of investigation, so as to take into account the widest possible range of "functional markers". One of the aims of this synthesis is precisely to take stock of these markers, by emphasizing their contributions, their limits and the interest of combining them.
