Le projet ALeRT. Des sites archéologiques en danger sur le littoral de la Manche et de l’Atlantique.

Abstract : In this article we present the activities undertaken and challenges faced by the ALeRT project (Archéologie, Littoral et Réchauffement Terrestre, i.e. Archaeology, Coast and Global Warming), led by the Centre de Recherche en Archéologie, Archéosciences, Histoire (CReAAH) at the Observatoire des Sciences de l’Univers in Rennes (OSUR). Climate change has an impact on coastal zones in different respects; coastal erosion, combined with human-induced stress factors affect not only natural systems but also the whole of the cultural, historic, and archaeological heritage of the regions bordering the Channel and the Atlantic. This loss of heritage resources and scientific evidence needed to be addressed as a matter of urgency. The approach of the ALeRT project consists of : - a research element (reflection on vulnerability and risk assessment in coastal environments, applied to the cultural heritage) - observation (including the development of standardised procedures and the setting up of an interactive database and dedicated applications) - and finally the establishment of a network of participants The project aims to promote preventive archaeology in a coastal landscape, targeting the interface between the marine and terrestrial milieus.
