  • Project description

The Loire river is a structuring element of the landscape, playing a major role in the society-environment relations and settlement dynamics. Since roman antiquity, the Ligerian corridor appeared in the springs as a place of exchange and a commercial axis, both by navigation and by land traffic along its banks. Although the Loire Valley may have been an axis of exchange, its real role in the organisation and occupation of the nearby territory is unknown. The multiplication of archaeological data available in the Middle Loire basin since the 1970s, thanks to the development of exploration methods and the expansion of preventive archaeology, offer the possibility of approaching the issue from an archaeological approach with a diachronic perspective.
