Spatial dynamics of settlement pattern and cultivated areas from Protohistory to Middle Ages: Comparative approaches with spatial statistics indicators

Abstract : In the framework of the French Archaedyn program, the parallel works done on settlements networks and cultivated areas documented by off-site material collected during fieldwalking campaigns led to a crossed approach. Using indicators of spatial statistics like centroids and standard deviation ellipses permitted to measure the extent of spatial dynamics that affect the exploitation centres on one hand (weighted by their rank in the network) and cultivated areas on the other (depending on the density of ceramic collected). At each step, the definition of relative instead of absolute estimators allowed the development of a comparative approach made difficult by the long period taken into account. We reason as well in terms of mobility or stability, concentration or dispersion of the objects studied, depending on the local characteristics of the environment.
