L’état sanitaire des premiers aménagements de berge en bois antiques de Saint-Lupien à Rezé/Ratiatum (Loire-Atlantique) : l’apport de la xylo-entomologie

Abstract : The contribution of entomology to xylological analyses is a new and increasingly common approach in the field of heritage preservation. Such an approach was adopted for the study of waterlogged wooden pieces such as piles and stakes stemming from the earliest embankment in Saint-Lupien in Rezé/Ratiatum (Loire-Atlantique). This method makes it possible to identify xylophagous insects based on the traces they left in the wood, i.e., galleries and excreta of the xylophagous larvae. Their sometimes precise species identification provides clues about the nature of the wood and contributes to an evaluation of its state of preservation and the moment it was infested. The interpretation of the archaeological data, enhanced by this new type of analysis benefits from valuable insights into the selection and use of timber by the riverside communities in Roman times.
