202203_jobarcheo_pacea The GPR (Grand Programme de Recherche) ‘Human Past’ is an interdisciplinary research project supported by the University of Bordeaux's Initiative d’Excellence. ‘Human Past’ gathers ~110 researchers from 3 laboratories (PACEA, AUSONIUS, and Archéosciences Bordeaux) affiliated with the University of Bordeaux (UB) and the University of Bordeaux Montaigne (UBM). Our expertise combines Biological Anthropology, Classical and Medieval Archaeology, Prehistory, Protohistory, History, Epigraphy, Archaeometry, Geochronology and Computer Science Applications to Cultural Heritage.


Project description


There is a growing interest in the way space was used and perceived in Palaeolithic decorated caves and the way in which Palaeolithic people moved within the caves during their incursions. This field of study requires an interdisciplinary approach that needs to be adapted to the different function, or functions, underground spaces were used for: funerary place (e.g.Cussac), decorated space (e.g. Chauvet, Cussac, Rouffignac, Volp), monumental space (e.g. Bruniquel, Chauvet). Research in this domain must take into account, among others, lighting, acoustics, access to symbolic and decorated areas. The sites mentioned above are currently under study by our team and a large dataset, particularly on Bruniquel and Cussac caves, is available.


The post-doctoral fellow will contribute to:


1) completing the inventory and interpretation of traces left by humans and other species (TrAcs database) with a special focus on selected modification types (e.g. ichnology, breakage and displacement of speleothems, access to specific areas of the site, archaeological visibility of artworks and constructions)


2) complementing with their scientific or analytical expertise that of the existing team


3) exploring the pertinence of additional analytical methods


4) organizing symposium sessions, participating in research or synthesis publications (as 1st author or coauthor depending on involvement). As the project progresses, additional activities or research at other sites may be implemented.
