Sandro Carocci, Signorie di Mezzogiorno

Sandro Carocci, Signorie di Mezzogiorno. Società rurali, poteri aristocratici e monarchia (XII-XIII secolo), Roma (Viella) 2014.

 

Résumé/abstract :

 

Qual era il vero volto della signoria nel Mezzogiorno italiano? Cosa può apportare il Sud alle grandi discussioni sul feudalesimo e sui poteri aristocratici, sulla loro struttura e sulla loro evoluzione, sul loro impatto economico e sociale? Che contributo può venire dal Regno di Sicilia agli studi sulla dialettica che avveniva fra sovrani, nobiltà e società contadine? E poi, lo studio dei poteri signorili e delle società rurali può riconfigurare le classiche tematiche meridionali dell’arretratezza economica e della centralità monarchica?

 

Questo libro costituisce la prima analisi sistematica sulla signoria nel Mezzogiorno durante l’epoca normanno-sveva e primo-angioina. Offre nuove interpretazioni sul potere della nobiltà, sulle società rurali e sulla politica monarchica. Mostra come fra re, nobili e contadini si attuò un gioco complesso, condotto attraverso le leggi e la violenza, i rapporti feudali e gli investimenti economici, le discussioni sulla libertà e la servitù, lo sfruttamento di uomini e risorse naturali. I suoi protagonisti sono mondi contadini dal dinamismo finora insospettato, re determinati a limitare il potere aristocratico, e nobili costretti ad adattare la propria signoria alla forza delle società rurali e della politica monarchica. Ne esce un Mezzogiorno finora sconosciuto, vitale e articolato, la cui lettura permette di comprendere meglio non solo le vicende del meridione, ma quelle di molte altre regioni.

The Key to Uppåkra: digitizing a unique archeological cultural heritage

Responsables du projet/Project leaders : Torbjörn Ahlström (torbjorn.ahlstrom@ark.lu.se), Mats Roslund (mats.roslund@ark.lu.se)

Établissements principaux/Main institutions : Historical Archaeology

Department of Archaeology and Ancient History, Lund University

Projet en cours/Project in progress

Description :

The purpose of the project The Key to Uppåkra is to create an integrated database containing spatial and chronological information from the archaeological investigations at Uppåkra in Scania, connected to a visual collection of the artefacts for further research and public visualization of the extensive sources. Firstly, it will secure the quality of and access to the archaeological documentation from the site. In the project, eighteen years of very diverse archaeological investigations are synchronised into a coherent digital frame, by using Intrasis and GIS, translating digital data into visual format. Secondly, parallel to the temporal-spatial ordering, 28 000 artefacts will be photographed and made accessible on the Internet by the use of K-Samsök and Europeana, two commonly used facilities in museums. This opens up possibilities for research on societal change during the politically formative period for early Scandinavian states, based on a site with extremely long settlement continuity. The database will be internationally accessible to scholars, as well as the public, through open access. The mobilization for a database will be the launchpad for sustainable knowledge, with national and international impact. Uppåkra will be important for scholars occupied with questions on pre-urban societies and how they were established and transformed into towns, in their ecological, social and cultural context. As such, the Uppåkra database will have a global scope.

Gleeson Caitríona M., A social archaeology of Anglo-Norman Cork

Gleeson Caitríona M., A social archaeology of Anglo-Norman Cork, Thèse de doctorat soutenue en 2015 (dir. K. O’Conor, NUI Galway)

Résumé/abstract :

The Anglo-Norman occupation of Cork permanently altered the physical and societal landscape of the city, and its immediate surrounding area. Over the course of nearly a century and a half, a small but functioning harbour became the premier Anglo-Norman port on the south-west coast of Ireland, and the earlier settlement transitioned from a small Hiberno-Norse trading community and nearby monastic nucleus into a socially- and architecturally-diverse urban centre. This process of urbanisation was a deliberate action on the part of the Anglo-Normans to ‘civilise’ their new colony in the late 12th century, and by the late 13th and early 14th centuries, the thriving town of Cork was a testament to the successful realization of this goal. There has been extensive archaeological investigation within the city, which has uncovered significant evidence of Cork’s urban medieval development. To date, the results of these excavations have not been academically assessed as a compound entity. This study is the first attempt to establish a cohesive archaeological and historical understanding of the impact of Anglo-Norman occupation on the social morphology of Cork’s earliest urban inhabitants. It is, effectively, the first integrated interpretation of all available archaeological data from the Anglo-Norman period in Cork. Using an approach which integrates historical and archaeological evidence to define exact temporal parameters, the present writer has interrogated all available excavation data as part of a high-resolution study of the social archaeology of Anglo-Norman Cork. This has resulted in a new understanding of some long-held perceptions of the period between c.1171 and c.1315 in the city. This research has challenged previous historical interpretations of the impact of the Anglo-Norman occupation on the existing Hiberno-Norse inhabitants, and re-defined their role as useful participants in the economy of the Anglo-Norman city. Evidence of at least four social strata within the town has been identified, and new information on the quality of life enjoyed by the lower-ranking craft-workers and artisans of the period is put forward. Phases of economic migration within the city have been recognized, as has physical evidence of the elite members of society at this time. Life-ways, both individual and familial, have been deciphered from the data in order to enrich, and personalize, this account of the social archaeology of Anglo-Norman Cork.

Premiers résultats de la fouille programmée d’un nouvel édifice de prestige au château de Caen

Bénédicte Guillot (Centre Michel de Boüard – Craham ; Inrap)

En 1998, la ville de Caen a lancé un programme de conservation et de mise en valeur du château de Caen. Une opération d’archéologie préventive a eu lieu en 2005 à l’emplacement des actuelles « salles du rempart ». Une fouille programmée a été lancée en 2011 afin d’étudier un grand bâtiment mis en évidence en 2005 et se développant au sud des limites de fouille. Elle s’est poursuivie en 2012 et 2013 et s’est terminée en 2014 (fig. 1). La réalisation du rapport final de cette opération est en cours mais une première synthèse peut déjà être proposée.
