La maison et l’habitat à la fin du Moyen Âge en Normandie : Pour un dialogue entre archéologie et sources écrites

Abstract : For a generation, Norman archaeology has unearthed a corpus of sites that allows us today to broadly outline the regional forms of rural housing in the late Middle Ages. However, many shortcomings remain, relating as much to the layout or arrangement of the houses as to their inhabitants and to the life that they lead there, to their environment, to the plots, outbuildings, road network, to the free or cultivated areas... Incidental to the soil deficit and occupancy levels, to the levelling of the walls or to the narrowness of the excavation areas, these gaps that are inherent in archaeology can nevertheless be questioned in the light of the written sources of which the input remains largely unexploited to date by archaeologists, historians being more concerned with lexical, land, legal or socio-economic issues. Some specific examples borrowed from the Lower Normandy sector of the Dives valley, in the Calvados, show how the use of texts can prove profitable for archaeologists.
