La formation d'un tissu urbain dans la Cité de Tours : du site de l'amphithéâtre antique au quartier canonial (5e-18e s.)

Abstract : This survey of the urban fabric on the site of the Roman amphitheatre at Tours leads to a different lecture beside the traditional historical topography, by stressing less on the situations than on the functional, spatial and temporal relationships between the urban objects. The modelling of the dynamics of the urban fabric (streets, plots but also buildings that emerge from the ancient amphitheatre) allows to identify and to describe the processes resulting in the formation of the urban space in the Medieval and Modern Periods. Compared with the rest of the city, the peculiarity of the site lies not only on the presence of the antique amphitheatre, but especially on the social destination of the space which first was occupied by an aristocratic housing in the Early Middle Ages then formed, from the 13th century onwards, part of the canonial precinct of the cathedral.
