This session is the second part of the series on trade in the Mediterranean and focuses on the later Middle Ages, in the 13th and 14th centuries. It explores aspects of trade, particularly with the Eastern Mediterranean and Southern France. This session will highlight the developing understanding of commerce and international relations beyond the more widely recognised trading ports of Italy, by looking at the development of trade in Provence, Armenian Cilicia, and Egypt with the wider Christian world.
