Title:  PhD Student
Institution:  Cluster Pasts in the Present

Anaïs Musseau made my early five years of high studies in the University of Nantes. She began by three years for my bachelor in Art history and Archaeology, then two years in specialization for professional research with a master of Sciences for Archaeology. During these two years, Jimmy Mouchard ran her master’s theses who dealt with patterns of occupation and foundation of constructions developed in wetlands during Antiquity. Since October 2020, She is a doctoral student in archaeology within the University of Paris Nanterre (doctoral school 395) under a doctoral contract with the Labex Les passés dans le présent. Member of the environnemental archaeologies team of ArScAn, the object of her study is the origin and the history of forest wetlands within the Seine valley curves (Ile-de-France and Normandy), particularly through a geohistorical approach of the forests. First of all, the purpose is notably to rely on Lidar data exploited within a Geographic Information System to realise an inventory work. Then, archaeological verifications can be carried out, linked to the study of historical, archaeological and paleoenvironmental data already existing.
