Abstract

This is the first of two sessions that will examine the role that land claims played on the production of boundaries in early medieval localities and their impact on the landscape. The aim is to analyse the often conflictive social relationships and practices that contributed to the delimitation, maintenance, and transformation of boundaries. It will offer a comparative perspective, drawing together papers on different European regions and periods.
