Abstract

In this session some of the case studies within the digital clusterproject DPP will present their scholarly results with a special emphasis on patterns of power and memory in landscapes of medieval Europe. These case studies share a common basis of mountainous ecologies, their position on the peripheries of imperial spheres (Frankish Realm, Byzantine Empire, Arab Caliphate) and the specific framework provided by these conditions for the emergence and dynamics of political and socio-economic structures.
