Les seigneurs des eaux. Juridiction et contrôle des cours d'eau dans la Gascogne médiévale

Abstract : Thanks to grants of water remaining in cartularies from Bordelais during 11th, 12th and 13th centuries, the paper studies the exercise of an important seigniorial power, the stream control. This form of control of space, whose origin is public, allows us to discern levels of lordships and to understand why, despite the absence of mill's« banalité », a lord can make inescapable the water mills under his control. The paper focuses on one stream planning located south of Bordeaux, called « Eau Bourde ». The closeness of the town which flour needs are growing causes many constructions of water mills, redraws the streams, provokes conflicts and transform the mills in laboratories to test new social practises.
