Abstract

The project Digitising Patterns of Power (DPP) focuses on the depiction and analysis of space and place in medieval written sources, of the interaction between built and natural environment, of appropriation of space and of the emergence of new political, religious), and economic structures of power. DPP compares three regions of the medieval world: the Eastern Alps (6th-12th centuries), the historical region of Macedonia (12th-14th centuries) and historical Southern Armenia (5th-11th centuries). In this session an emphasis will be put on two different case studies, namely the nomads in the historical region of Macedonia (i.e. the Vlachs) and on border societies in Asia Minor in the 12th-13th centuries.
