Un puits : reflet de la vie quotidienne à Montpellier au XIIIe s.

Abstract : The presentation of the totality of chattels (ceramics, wood, metal, glass, leather, cloths) and the fauna filling a well, in therue Barallerie in Montpellier, gives an exceptional and diversified image of the life in this urban metropolis at the 13th century. The pre-eminence of ceramics in the other categories is remarkable, with virtually all pieces of crockery being regional with few imports. The study of ceramics, completed by the characterisation of clays in the laboratory and compared with written sources, contributes to the research on production in the Montpellier area, perhaps of the city itself in this period. It gives afirst approach to their distribution and gives information on the mode of supply of this district. Dishes and objects made of wood constitute one of the major sets discovered in France, uncommon in the Mediterranean area.
