Le tumulus de Kervingar (Plouarzel, Finistère) : un regard nouveau sur les débuts de la recherche archéologique d’après-guerre en Bretagne

Abstract : Drawing from a set of unpublished material, this paper revisits the 1953 excavation of the Early Bronze Age mound of Kervingar in Plouarzel (Finistère) by Pierre-Roland Giot (1919-2002). Reviewing these documents in a historical scientific context allows us to present the excavation of this site as a key example of the scientific revival occurring within French archaeology in the late 1940s. Above all, Kervingar represents a fundamental early example of the scientific rigor characteristic of the Laboratoire d’Anthropologie, Préhistoire, Protohistoire et Quaternaire armoricains, a laboratory that would come to lead most of the regional research in Western France throughout the second half of the twentieth century. Furthermore, previously unreleased footage of the fieldwork in Kervingar presents an opportunity to conduct an innovative image analysis to obtain a 3D digital reconstruction of several aspects of the 1953 excavations. This method underscores the utility of scientific analyses of archival image collections.
