Abstract

This article aims to provide the first scholarly overview of the practice of reuse of building material in late antique and early Islamic Palmyra (273-750 ce) and to examine this phenomenon more systematically within the Sanctuary of Baalshamin. To achieve this, it makes use of previously unpublished archival data. The way in which this material was used at Palmyra varied depending on the function of the buildings. By examining evidence from the Sanctuary of Baalshamin in more detail, the article also advances several hypotheses on building practices and the organisation of the workforce.
Cet article fournit la première synthèse académique sur le remploi de matériaux de construction à Palmyre dans l’Antiquité tardive et la période islamique ancienne (273-750). Ce phénomène est étudié plus particulièrement dans le sanctuaire de Baalshamin, en s’appuyant sur des archives jusqu’alors inédites. La façon dont ces matériaux ont été utilisés à Palmyre varie selon la fonction des bâtiments. En étudiant plus en détail les données disponibles dans le sanctuaire de Baalshamin, l’article propose également plusieurs hypothèses sur les pratiques de construction et l’organisation de la main-d’œuvre.
