Reflections on the concept of marginal landscape through a study of late medieval incultum in Provence (South-eastern France)

Abstract : The concept of marginal landscape is often used by historians and archaeologists to qual- ify peripheric lands, such as islands, and all non intensive agricultural lands, such as moun- tains, forests and wetlands. The use of this concept must be cautious and argued accord- ing to the complexity of the notions of margin and landscape. The aim of this paper is to demonstrate, throught a historical and archaeological cross-study of late medieval incultum landscape in Provence that a so-called marginal landscape may in fact be a spatial, economical and social integrated landscape.
