Une histoire géo-archéologique du rapport à la Loire : le cas de la boire de Saint-Venant à Tours

Abstract : The production of the urban milieu is conditioned by the hydrographic realities. The study of the rivulet of Saint-Venant allows a genuine crossing of the textual, archaeological, morphological and paleo-environmental histories of the same object : it demonstrates the essential role of the Loire and of its morphodynamic operation in the structuring of the urban space of Tours.
Thus, south of the current minor river-bed, the old strap-work of the Loire, which dates to the glacial period, became the paleo-canals which were used as channels of flooding in historical times : they form rivulet which can then become streets of the city of Tours, recorded by the cadastral Napoleonic map.
