Abstract

Este artículo estudia el Apostadero de la Marina de Cartagena de Indias durante el tránsito entre los siglos XVIII y XIX y, en particular, las características de los trabajos que en él se realizaban. Muestra que las labores de los sistemas defensivos demandaban grandes concentraciones de trabajadores, y que estas formas de trabajo estaban más allá del pequeno taller artesanal encabezado por un maestro y con la participación de la unidad familiar o de un escaso número de oficiales y aprendices. Sugiere que existió una relación entre la crisis del Imperio a partir de 1808, la crisis presupuestal del Apostadero y la crisis política de Cartagena, con el respaldo que los trabajadores brindaron al proyecto de independencia absoluta de Espana. This article studies the Colonial Navy Docks and Shipyard of Cartagena de Indias in the late xviiith and early xixth centuries and, in particular, the characteristics of the activities undertaken there. We show that the defensive systems demanded large concentrations of workers, and that these went beyond the small artisan workshop led by a master craftsman, with the participation of the family unit or of a small number of journeymen and apprentices. We suggest that a relationship exists between the crisis of the Empire, beginning in 1808, the budget crisis of the Shipyard and the political crisis in Cartagena, with the support given by workers to the movement for absolute independence from Spain.
