Sponsor:Ancient Abbeys of Brittany Project
Organiser:Claude Lucette Evans, Department of Language Studies, University of Toronto, Mississauga
Moderator/Chair:Kenneth Paul Evans, School of Administrative Studies, York University, Ontario

The aim of this round table discussion is to present and discuss new collaborative and interdisciplinary projects concerning Aquitaine, Normandy, and Brittany. The aim of Monasticon Aquitaniae is to establish a comprehensive history of abbeys in southwestern France which will be made available electronically. The Mont Saint-Michel Project includes a reconsideration of the architecture of the site enhanced by the use of 3D scans and orthophotography. The MILBRETEUR Project focuses on religious, economic, and social life in early Brittany soon after the end of Scandinavian control. It relies on evidence from various sources: textual, linguistic, archaeological, and geological.

Participants include, Yves Gallet (Université Bordeaux Montaigne), Christian Gensbeitel (Université Bordeaux Montaigne), and Joëlle Quaghebeur (Université de Bretagne-Sud).
