Dr. Robin Brigand
Robin BRIGAND received a Ph.D. in Archaeology from the Universities of Franche-Comté (Besançon, France) and Padua (Italia). He is currently a post-doctorate researcher at UMR 8215 Trajectoires and UMR 7218 LAVUE (Paris, France). His studies on the spatial impact of former societies focus – using various scales – on site systems and their environments, settlement patterns, raw material acquisition and distribution, landscape dynamics, etc. Within this framework, he is involved in an ethnoarchaeological study on territorial practices surrounding salt uses and circulation in Romanian Moldavia. Besides these research developments, he is interested in understanding ways in which human societies create, use and transform cultural heritage from a planimetric point of view.
