Paléogéographie d'un territoire : la cité des Bituriges Cubi

Abstract : Inside the Bituriges Cubi's territory (Indre, Cher and the Allier to the west), archaeological data concerning rural occupation has produced a fresh series of quantitative spatial analyses. Applying Geographical Information Systems (GIS), the various forms of data generally correlate well with each other as well as with available environmental information. It clearly demonstrates the role played by the various factors governing Gallo-Roman rural settlement (rivers, slope's aspect, etc). Soil quality seems to have had most influence on the incidence of Gallo-Roman rural habitats. The environment for ancient agricultural activity generally featured different yet complementary soil types. Heavy clay soils, with varying agricultural potential, as well as alluvial and colluvial soils are particularly significant. On the contrary, waterlogged areas were rejected.
