Within the current range of archaeological periodicals dedicated to specific regions, periods or specialties, Archéopages proposes a new editorial approach based on archaeology’s ability to bring fresh insights into the ways humans live together. Archéopages examines a theme, which are followed by an exchange of views between an archaeologist and a researcher from another discipline and summarises a research programme or critically presents new archaeological methods and techniques. The journal also gives ample coverage to new discoveries.

Beer, wine, brandy, liqueur... Alcoholic beverages have always been multiple and so have the ways of consuming them, while the image that society has of alcohol consumers oscillates between the best and the worst. What facilities and containers were invented to ensure fermentation, distillation and conservation? How are recipes created, perpetuated and refined? What elements are used in the composition of these drinks and what properties do they have or not? Was the alcohol produced to be consumed quickly or could it be kept? What archaeological evidence can be used to assess the quantities and qualities produced? Archaeological remains and furniture allow us to take account of the diversity of use and the evolution of taste. We distinguish the ways in which the production and consumption of certain alcohols were reserved or limited to a particular type of event (ritual, festival, meal, illness, etc.), a social class, a gender or a region.

    L’usage du détecteur de métaux : Premier bilan d’expérimentations diverses à l’Inrap
    Use of metal detectors: Initial assessment of various experiments at Inrap
    El uso de detectores de metales: primera evaluación de varios experimentos en Inrap
    The use of the detector continues to arouse doubt or mistrust in the archaeological community because this device is first and foremost linked to experiences of looting, venality, and the destruction of sites and data. However, when properly understood and carried out by experienced people, it can be very useful during an operation: it can be used to orientate strategies and make excavation choices, to build up a more complete corpus, sometimes unpublished, which will help to better understand the social status or the diversity of types of occupation of a site, to better read the chronological overlaps, especially on sites with short occupation periods, to reveal structures and... to limit the risks of looting!
