Les chantiers de construction de la citadelle de Damas : Méthodologie et résultats préliminaires

Abstract : The present contribution deals with the “Salle à colonnes”, connecting the eastern end northem gate of the Citadel and thirteenth centuries. It seeks to understand the building from an archaeological approach to monumental architecture, based on the analysis of technical data including dimensions, building materials (principally stone), tools and tools and toolmarks, stone cutting techniques (functional and ornemental), vaulting, geometry, structure of the walls, masons marks and reused elements. Except for the establishment of a research method, the preliminary results of this research allow us to state some aspects of the organisation of labour. This comparison reveals in particular a renassiment of the classical building techniques and organisation of labour, with, for example, the presence of teams of specialists working on walls, openings, arches and vaults.
