Summary of thesis The project includes the study of raw materials ressources in the Alps (soapstone quarries) and of the archaeological objects from Western Switzerland. The different types of materials will be described using chemical and mineralogical methods (XRF, XRD, microscopy and MEB). A special attention will be paid to the physical properties of the material to understand why it has been used. The archaeological approach (chronology and typology) will be developped.
