Détections géopotopographiques et premières réflexions sur l’emplacement des ports maritimes et fluvio-maritimes de Bretagne (de la Protohistoire à l’époque moderne). Colloque international HOMER 2021 (Du 28/09 au 03/10)

Abstract : Due to its strategic location and its 3300 km of coastline, the Breton peninsula has always played an important role in terms of trade by sea. This contribution is not intended to address the case of port facilities (moles, dikes, quays, piers, pontoons, holds, ramps, wharfs, etc.), an essential question that will have to be answered in a second step and which will necessarily involve field operations (surveys and excavations). It is a question here of insisting on the natural conditions of implantation and the many geotopographic facies of the Breton coast, from Protohistory to modern times. Through its jagged coasts and coastal rivers, this coastline presents a real geotopographic diversity (islands, capes, points, bays, coves, creeks, aber, beaches and shores), foreshadowing as many port opportunities (anchorage, stranding, docking ...). The various criteria used to feed this analysis grid allow for an initial reflection on the sectors conducive to the development of ancient port activities. The purpose is to achieve a better understanding of the port potential and Breton paleo-ports (still active ports, relict ports and fossil ports). Depending on the geotopographic characteristics of the sites encountered and their conservation context, this archeogeographic approach should ultimately allow better definition of the protection zonings in order to orient prescription policies and planned research, by means of a methodology and adapted protocols.
