Vestiges d'habitat seigneurial fortifié dans l'Ouest nivernais (XIè - XVIè siècles)

Abstract : This is an exhaustive study of the types of fortified and seigniorial dwellings that could be seen in the western part of Nièvre between the XIth and XVIth centuries. It contains 408 monographs of different seigniorial dwellings in various state of preservation. That very peculiar countryside sends back to the history of Nièvre: from the progressive growing of the county in the end of the XIth century until the lack of interest of the dukes of Nevers in their territory in the XVIth century. The area is dotted with circular or oval motes whose little size may recall the modesty of those who raised them, and with remains sometimes important - of former castles now falling into ruins. Numerous vestiges of moated sites or fortified mansions can also be seen. Their dimensions are various. Some look like real castles whose building brought land into cultivation, some are raised near ancient soles.
