Abstract

Artisans in the late Middle Ages often owned an important amount of land in some European regions, despite it was not their main activity. There are constant references about it in the relatively abundant Valencian data. Nevertheless, this subject has aroused only a few detailed studies. In this article we have asked ourselves about the importance of those agrarian plots in the little workshops' domestic economies and in the social strategies of these families. To explain all those matters, we have studied some examples along the country: from the professionals of the little towns, to urban centres and also the artisans of the city of Valencia at the end of the 14th and during the 15th century.
