Abstract

This session explores the possibilities of analyzing the interplay between town, countryside, and both urban and rural elites on the basis of spatial analysis, archaeological evidence, and historic source material in the late-medieval Low Countries. Matters dealt with are the distribution of marketplaces and roads of access, production and consumption, and the development of social hierarchies.
