Abstract

The three sessions ‘Defended Communities’: Fortified Settlements of the 8th-10th Centuries: Origins, Forms, and Functions, I-III aim at comparing the archaeology of fortified settlements across Europe, beyond the scope of regions that are usually compared and studied together. By analysing the origins, forms and functions of these settlements, similarities and differences will be discussed in the development of European regions in the late phase of the early Middle Ages.
