Maritime Silk Roads, past and present


RESEARCH THEMES

 

History and archaeology of maritime exchanges between the East of the Indian Ocean and the South China Sea (first millennium BC - the first millennium AD) or “Maritime Silk Roads”

 

 I. Connectivity of the Asian maritime basins and co-evolution of the different populations (complex, trading, farmers, nomads) from the Thai-Malay peninsula and of their environments in relation to long-distance exchanges in the “longue durée”. Study of the cultural changes through the analysis:

 

1. technologies to reconstitute:

 

-         the socio-economic and political contexts (political centralisation, complexification, etc.)

 

-         role of industries and artisans in political and identity constructions

 

-         ethnicity/identity dynamiques

 

2. of landscapes caracterising:

 

-         settlements human (urban process, their distribution, hierarchy and symbolic value) ;

 

-         evolution of the agricultural practices;

 

3. biological change to identify environmental and social adaptations

4. the role of marginal groups in historical trajectories, in particular sea nomads

 

 

 

II. Heritage/ Community archaeology. Representations and uses of the past in Southeast Asia. Participative Heritage Managment with local communities (project combining anthropology, technologies, archaeology, history, botany, museology).
