Les atouts de l’imagerie 3D pour l’archéologie de terrain (réflexions à partir d’exemples fouillés récemment en Bretagne)

Abstract : The persons in charge of archaeological operations must explain différent observations in reports and publications which generally decompose into two main parts ; one descriptive and one interpretative. The first is based on a speech supported by methodical records and photos while the second appeals to more imaginative resources which nevertheless have to base themselves on a credible reflection. At this level, the imaging 3D is an appropriate way to explain and justify a point of view by leaning on clear and demonstrative illustrations. The restitutions elaborated in this spirit can not be reduced to simple digital images but are conceived as means of study and argumentation since the phase of ground. These principles, implemented during several interventions made these last years in Brittany, allow to understand better and to restore more clearly sites often very damaged and with difficulty understandable. The set testifies of an evolution of the archaeological discipline through the emergence of new tools of reflection. To date, the reproduction of the examples convinces more and more local researchers of the possibilities offered by the imaging 3D in the functional analysis of sites and, by extension, in the understanding of the ancient societies.
