Femmes et production textile à Aššur au début du IIe millénaire avant J.-C.

Abstract : At the beginning of the IInd millennium B.C., the inhabitants of Aššur organized long distance trade with Minor Asia; they exported tin and textiles and brought back gold and silver. Some of the textiles were bought in South Mesopotamia while the others were produced locally by the Assyrian merchants wives and daughters. The cuneiform tablets dealing with this trade allow to reconstruct the production from the gathering of wool over the back of the sheep to the selling of textiles ; they give data on some manufacture technics and document the impact of textile production over the daily life of these women and their relationships with their husbands.
