Apport des prospections magnétiques haute résolution à la compréhension d’un habitat protohistorique : l’exemple du site de hauteur fortifié du Maimont

Abstract : As part of the archaeological study of the site of Maimont, located in both Niedersteinbach (Bas-Rhin, France) and Schönau (Rheinland Pfalz, Germany) municipalities, several magnetic surveys have been conducted to fulfil two objectives. Firstly, to identify traces of ancient anthropogenic constructions (presence of pits, residues of fire-related activities, terraces built for crafting activities, traces and plans of building). Secondly, to identify areas disturbed by intense activity during WW2. To this end, a high-resolution surveying technique well adapted to a rugged topography in a mountainous and forest environment has been applied. Thus, through an interdisciplinary approach and a comparison of the magnetic results with archaeological data, it is possible to highlight archaeological structures that are often considered not easily detectable with magnetic methods (post holes, terraces) and in a difficult surveying environment, thus validating a new innovative approach to high-resolution geophysical detection and analysis for archaeology.
