Study of past and present records in soils from Lorraine (France) : a geoarchaeological approach in the context of rescue archaeology.
This paper presents some aspects of past and present records gathered during the last two decades, examining soil profiles in rescue archaeological contexts in Lorraine. After a general presentation of the regional geomorphological context, the paper will report and discuss some results collected through both archaeological prospection and excavation phases.
Finally, this report is an opportunity to make some conclusions on the possible geoarchaeological approach to rescue archaeology in Lorraine (France).
