Ministère de la culture Inrap


As part of its mission to disseminate archaeological knowledge, Inrap publishes, produces and co-produces documentaries, multimedia dossiers, exhibitions, etc. all of which are designed for cultural stakeholders, in particular the organisers of the EAD.

News reports

Every year, approximately twenty reports are produced on the latest discoveries made on archaeological sites. These film shoots offer the opportunity to interview field archaeologists, specialists in a particular period or discipline, developers and sometimes the general public. They provide insights into the work carried out by researchers and the scientific challenges faced when carrying out digs.
