Le Minier : résultats de la campagne de prospection 2019

Abstract : The thematic survey campaign that took place from the 17th of August to the 7th of September 2019 at the Minier focused on silver production vestiges in the valley of the Amalou, in the municipality of the Viala-du-Tarn (Occitanie, Aveyron). This valley was the site of a long-term mining and metallurgical activity during the High and Late Middle Ages (XIIth-XVth centuries), based on the exploitation of a few rich deposits of galena. This had a centralizing effect, leading to the creation of a permanent settlement, the current village of the Minier, and stimulated production by concentrating activities within a relatively restricted space. The goal of the 2019 campaign was to create a topographical survey, to record the remains linked to metal production already inventoried during the past two campaigns in 2017 and 2018, to expand on the architectural study of the medieval houses preserved at the Minier, and to continue the stripping of textual sources, in order to gather together and harmonize the resources.
