Abstract

Research on the history of the Vandals is going on rapidly in the USA and Europe, which was shown by the two last-year sessions at Leeds, the French Antiquité Tardive volumes and a planned 2005 conference in Vienna. To continue the interdisciplinary exchange and to bring together those who are currently working on Vandal topics the organisers want to give a platform for further discussions in another Leeds-Session. There will be an archaeological and two historical focuses on the Vandal Regnum.
