Abstract

The following session is the final one of three panels organised to put together different researches currently developed on various aspects of late medieval economy (production, market, consumption and etc.) under the guiding line of a single concept: Time. This third encounter is composed of papers regarding questions, such as: How did agents communicate and create networks? Which parts were verbal, written, or experience based? Which were the tools of trade, their objects, and their means of transport? What were the forms and phases of knowledge transmission? All essays interested in transferts of technical knowledge, innovation, and industrial spying.
