Abstract

Research on the history of the Vandals is progressing rapidly, which was shown by the two last year sessions at Leeds. To continue the interdisciplinary exchange and to bring together those who are currently working on Vandal topics the organizers want to give a platform for further discussions in another Leeds Session. There will be an archaeological and historical focus on Vandal migrations and identities including the presentation of a new look on the Vandal coinage system.
