The inhabitants of the commune are known as Artempois or Artempoises
Artemps is located 10 km south-west of Saint-Quentin and 7 km north-east of Ham. It can be accessed by the D32 road from Saint-Simon in the south passing through the heart of the commune and the village and continuing to Seraucourt-le-Grand in the north. There are a few country roads in the commune and the old Saint-Simon – Clastres Air Base is in the south-east of the commune. The commune is mostly farmland with a forest belt along the whole northern border.
List of Successive Mayors of Artemps
(Not all data is known)
In 2010, the commune had 359 inhabitants. The evolution of the number of inhabitants is known through the population censuses conducted in the town since 1793. From the 21st century, a census of municipalities with fewer than 10,000 inhabitants is held every five years, unlike larger towns that have a sample survey every year.[Note 1]
Sites and Monuments
- St. Martin's Church
This church is one of the few in France to have a steeple topped by two cocks. The church has undergone many changes over the years but was not completely destroyed during the two world wars. Most windows have been preserved and on one of them the master glassmaker represented the church.

Notes and references
- At the beginning of the 21st century, the methods of identification have been modified by law No. 2002-276 of 27 February 2002 , the so-called "law of local democracy" and in particular Title V "census operations" which allow, after a transitional period running from 2004 to 2008, the annual publication of the legal population of the different French administrative districts. For municipalities with a population greater than 10,000 inhabitants, a sample survey is conducted annually, the entire territory of these municipalities is taken into account at the end of the period of five years. The first "legal population" after 1999 under this new law came into force in 1 January 2009 and was based on the census of 2006.
