Abstract

The three sessions addressing the studies on emergence of the East Central Europe intend to show longstanding cooperation of researchers from Germany, Poland and Russia, focusing on the research on two borderlands: between the German and West Slavic world, and the Polish-Rus. The first session will introduce the topic of European borderlands east of the Rhine. It will discuss the methodological problems of the research based on archaeological sources and addressing European divisions. Term East Central Europe has been introduced by the researchers from Poland, Czechia, and Hungary. Therefore, the Eastern European perspective on the history will be presented.
