Les monuments funéraires en Afrique du Nord : l'étude et la mise en valeur du mausolée royal numide Medracen

Abstract : The archaeological map of North Africa is dotted with funeral sites and monuments, of inestimable value covering different periods from prehistory to contemporary time.This fringe, so rich in information, is subject to multiple factors of deterioration and omitted from backup operations conducted up to now. Except a few. Once destroyed, this category of heritage is not renewable, it is imperative to preserve and ensure its conservation to allow continuity between past, present and future.This present research sheds light on the problematic of the valorization of funeral sites and monuments, through the study of ancient royal mausoleums. These precious latter are the witnesses of a Berber autochthonous architecture influenced by the foreign Mediterranean style.The mausoleum of Medracen in Batna is remarkable and unique for the study and understanding of this kind of mausoleums, as well as from typological perspective (choice of site, study of plans and volumetry, construction technique, materials, architectural elements), also from the pathological view (current situation and diagnosis).At the end of this study, we formulate a set of recommendations concerning the restoration and the valorization of the tomb, as well as its site. Then we propose a virtual 3D restitution test of the Medracen, in order to integrate the BIM in the conservation of the archaeological heritage in Algeria.
