My research is taking place for several years in a process of redefinition and recognition of prehistoric weapons. My results on archery at Neolithic have shown that productions of arrowheads are part of an exclusively domestic field, marked by a wide margins of variability and diversity fully accepted by the societies producing and consuming. And the same was observing for productions of bows.
The orientation of my research program for the coming years is part of a dynamic and growing for ten years: the theme of violence in ancient societies. Around the question of the role of weapons in violent demonstrations in the Neolithic and early Bronze Age, I develop a systemic approach in the continuity of those instituted during my PhD: the archaeological and paleopathological data will be enriched by studies in ethnology, sociology and psychology. The objective is to understand the implications of violence in the functioning of societies and to try to reveal the potential vectors of this one, and to be able to characterize more appreciably the authors.
