Quand le tout n’égale pas la somme des parties : technologies et modèles de représentation pour l’archéologie des villes et des territoires

Abstract : The archeology of cities and territories raises serious methodological issues that need to be addressed prior to any restitution project. This article highlights some peculiarities of large scale archeological projects. More than any other objects from the past, cities and landscapes have been subject to constant transformations involving all of their components. Their study involves a multitude of scales and fields of research and calls for new approaches to their representation models. We describe here three case studies from recent research projects: first, the relation between the Seine river paleogeography and the hypothetical location of Lutetia prior to roman conquest; second, the issue of how to spatially reference architecture, city shapes, plans and networks of Imperial Rome in a coherent and consistent way; third is an ongoing research project in the medieval monastic town of Cluny, where we identified different space and time scale processes to properly describe the birth and changes of urban shape. Finally, we suggest a few ideas to consider when designing a GIS-CAD workflow to rebuild a city or a former landscape.
