Cost and location of Lyon fortifications, 2nd half of the 14th century (France, Archives municipales de Lyon, CC191)
Edition by Carol Demessieux <>

About the edition: This manuscript gives a list of the various amounts spent to reinforce Lyon defences between 1346 and 1378. It is written in franco-provençal.

Aim of the digital edition: I wanted to explore the possibilities provided by the digital editing tools applied to humanities, especially as a medium for spatial representation. It allowed me to display financial data on a map, along with the boundaries of the 14th century fortifications of Lyon.

Nota: This transcription covers approximately one fifth of the whole manuscript.
