Les Archers de César. Recherches historiques, archéologiques et paléométallurgiques sur les archers dans l'armée romaine et leur armement de César à Trajan.

Abstract : This study tackles the question of the archery and the bodies of archers of Irst BC. in Irst A.C., being useful like auxiliaries in the Roman army. Several topics are treated there: ala and cohors auxiliaries troops of archers, origins of the archers, their recruitment, the tactics and strategies used around the archers like the their armament. The study of the armament of the archers is also studied from a point of view of the techniques. Excavations on the site of Uxellodunum have delivered an exceptional collection of iron weapons, with arrow heads and arrows of catapult. The major aim of this study concerns the characterization of their metallurgical structures an d the determination of distribution, morphology and composition of phases and constitants. From that time, it is possible to suggest various ways for production and thermo-mechanical treatments developped by blacksmiths, at the 1st century BC. This contributes to feed the technical history of forging.
