Abstract

The Slavic society in the provinces of present-day Slovenia was profoundly transformed by the processes initiated with the integration into the medieval German empire in the 10th century and the formation of feudal estates. Bestowed upon with large estates in this area by royal donations the Bavarian bishoprics of Salzburg, Freising and Brixen acquired a strong role in this process. The three contributions will concentrate on the aspects of: a) organisation of early-medieval central place and its gradual transformation into a full grown medieval town; b) development of economic and administrative structures; c) confrontation of archeological evidence with written sources.
