Abstract

These two sessions examine the intersection between the movement of people and material artefacts in late Antiquity and the early Middle Ages – more specifically, how material objects and the remains of physical structures (buildings, defenses, infrastructure, etc.) reflect mobility and migration. Within this general theme, papers will consider the use of material objects and structures as they reflect (or fail to reflect) the arrival, departure and/or impact of mobile or migrating groups and the representation of material culture/materiality in texts related to migration, exile, and mobility.
