The spatio-temporal dynamics of settlement patterns from 800 BC to 800 AD, in Central and Southern Gaul: models for an interregional comparison over the long term

Abstract : The aim of Workgroup 2, “Settlement patterns and territories”, is to apprehend the intensity, stability and the modalities of the occupation of rural space over the long term (from 800 BC to 800 AD) using indices related to settlements. Eleven study areas in the south and centre of France and in Slovenia are involved in this study. In order to allow interregional comparisons, a common protocol was defined to homogenise the data and assess their reliability. Two types of indices are used: quantitative and chronological indices which show the settlement intensity and dynamics; and qualitative indices which express the hierarchical typology of the settlement. The combination and spatialisation of these indices allow us to apprehend the structure of settlement patterns and to locate the areas which were more or less intensely occupied, in a more or less durable and stable manner during the 16 centuries under consideration
