Abstract

The six papers offered in these two sessions encompass archaeological, human geographic and historical research and include case studies as well as general synthesis. With these sessions we aim to explore the interactions between urban settlements and their rural hinterlands, as well as the town’s own production and self-sufficiency. Furthermore consequences of non-monetary economy in towns will be discussed.
