Abstract

Our session is dedicated to various aspects with regard to borders and border societies in Byzantine Macedonia, i.e. the Southern Balkan Peninsula, in the 13th and 14th centuries. Based on the analysis of medieval written sources and archaeological data we will address the perception of space, the state, and character of borders and migration processes in the area of research. Moreover, we will highlight digital tools, which we apply to our data in order to integrate them into various aspects of gecommunication (Web-GIS, OpenAtlas Database).
