Created in 2013, Artefact. Techniques, histoire et sciences humaines is dedicated to the study of technique and the materiality of its practices in human societies. Adopting a historical, archaeological and anthropological approach, the journal places the technical at the heart of its investigations. It publishes themed dossiers, research updates, miscellanies and book and exhibition reviews in French and English. Published by Presses Universitaires de Rennes (PUR), this biannual journal is launching its site with two issues available in full open access.
