Distribution spatiale des objets archéologiques et mouvements de matière à l’échelle des versants cultivés : le cas de Mougon (Indre-et-Loire, France)

Abstract : This contribution aims at discussing the use of geostatistics for the interpretation of the spatial surface distribution of archaeological artefacts. The experience was carried out with the artefacts collected in Mougon (Crouzilles, Indre-et-Loire, France) for the ACI TTT project of the French Ministry of Research. The initial purpose of the study was to distinguish the concentrations of artefacts indicating the presence of buried archaeological remains from a random spatial distribution of artefacts due to manuring and post-depositional processes. After all the artefacts were sorted out, counted and recorded, a geostatistical analysis has been performed to interpret the spatial distribution of the surface artefacts : ordinary kriging and conditional simulation were used. The use of geostatistics allowed a precise delimitation of archaeological features. It also revealed the influence of post-depositional processes on the spatial distribution of artefacts. Furthermore, this experiment led us to re-estimate the relevance of the units we used to collect and represent the survey data.
