"L’analyse de réseau en général et ses applications en archéologie"

Ce séminaire, organisé par César DUCURET, s’est déroulé le 7 octobre 2014,

Le Prof. Ray Rivers de l’Imperial College London est de passage à Paris et propose un séminaire sur l’analyse de réseau en général et ses applications en archéologie

We distinguish between data models which, crudely, work from data to infer social organisation, and the theory models of this talk which, from assumptions about society, infer data to be compared to the record. Inevitably, in the absence of ‘laws’ of social interaction, theory models have uncertain morphology and show contingency in the implementation of ‘good’ outcomes. Nonetheless, there are circumstances in which these difficulties can be overcome. To exemplify these ideas, I shall discuss Bronze Age Aegean maritime exchange networks and the rise of urbanisation in Archaic Greek city states. My conclusions depend on the nature of social units, the spatial organisation of the sites and the nature of the exchange technology.
