Constamment behavioré au cours des siècles, le territoire de l’Attique comporte des couches denses et pleines de trouvailles qui furent conservées ou réintégrées dans les nouvelles réalités naissantes d’une époque à l’autre. On risque toutefois de ne pas pouvoir discerner les étapes en raison de l. a. procédure complexe et longue par laquelle l’espace se constitution, une ville se construit et une cité prend sa forme. L’espace athénien s’articule à l’époque où los angeles ville se transforme en centre civique pour le territoire de l’Attique. Nous nous appuyons sur l’examen des dispositifs rituels des VIIe et VIe s. : non seulement les temples et les sanctuaires, mais aussi tout aménagement voué aux cultes et aux rites. L’histoire de l. a. topographie cultuelle d’Athènes et de l’Attique nous permet d’étudier l’urbanisation de l. a. ville. Nous proposons ainsi de répondre à de nombreuses questions ayant trait à l. a. localisation, l. a. datation et l’identification des websites comme le Pelargikon, l’Agora archaïque, le Brauronion de l’Acropole, and so forth. Les indices archéologiques nous amènent à formuler l’hypothèse que l’ensemble du territoire consiste en des unités géographiques secondaires, qui se développent d’une manière indépendante – comme Éleusis et Sounion – et qui se rattachent progressivement à l’espace athénien selon une volonté politique de centralisation, mise en œuvre seulement à partir de l’époque de Clisthène. Enfin, l’étude des assets littéraires permet de déconstruire les représentations spatiales et les revendications ethniques, comme on le constate à propos d’Éleuthère et des confins nord de l’Attique.
