Navires et marchandises islamiques en Méditerranée occidentale durant le haut Moyen Âge. Des épaves comme témoignages des échanges commerciaux entre domaines chrétiens et musulmans (IXe- Xe siècle)

Abstract : This multidisciplinary contribution, based on archaeometry, is included in the scope of historic, archaeological and economic studies on trade in the western Mediterranean Sea between the end of IXth and the Xth century AD.

The references to the exactions committed in Provence, from the IXth century, by the pirates, connected the presence of the shipwrecked vessels with the conflicts opposing Latin, Byzantine and Muslim merchants in the Golfe du Lion, but to a lesser extent, with the trade.
