AbstractThe following session is the first 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 first encounter will be composed of papers regarding questions, such as: what were the techniques and phases of production involved? What was the workers' time of employment? What is the influence of time in the organisation of mercantile life? Essays proposed to describe all components of productive processes, from raw materials to manufactered products, and their distribution in markets.
