Entre littoral et arrière-pays, l'organisation des activités artisanales : le cas de Narbonne antique

Abstract : The Roman colonial city of Narbonne, site on the Mediterranean shore of the current Languedoc-Roussillon region (France), is known for the high congregation of craftsmen depicted by its lapidary remains. An essay on the spatial distribution of the craft activities (pottery, metallurgy) is proposed based on the data furbished by urban excavations, archaeological research of its harbour and the surrounding country zones. This work benefits from first results derived from the recent archaeological operations at Salauze (Laure-Minervois), Port-la-Nautique and Grand Castélou, all in the framework of the research program "Les ports antiques de Narbonne". It has allowed to establish the basis for the reflection on the economical organisation of the craft industry network during the Roman Antiquity in Narbonne and its territory extending from the cost to its mountainous foothill.
