Poteries grises médiévales produites à Saint-Gilles-du-Gard

Abstract : The important documentation about ceramics, obtained from the medieval potters ovens at Saint-Gilles-du-Gard, has made it possible to characterize the various productions of this workshop, and to set a first typology. Besides the "pegau", representing the majority, coexist less known new shapes in grey ceramic, in particular, pots with horizontal handles on the side, open shapes and various jugs. The production presents a low-rhodanian aspects, and dtes from the end of the XIVth, as the typologic data and the archaeomagnetic investigation demonstrate. The wide persistence of burning un reducing atmopere in the Eastern Languedoc in this period, is thus proved. The use of several clay types within the same workshop, suggested by the external observation and proved by the laboratory analisis, telles us how a workshop functioned. Above all, it incites the archaeologist, who undertakes some investigations about the places of origin of finished items, to be extremely careful when interpreting the observed groups.
