Abstract

This is the second of a three session series aiming to discuss the social organisation of Andalusi and Christian frontier societies in medieval Iberia. Among others, issues concerning agricultural landscapes and productions, the military aspects of the conquest and colonisation, and the settlement of new colonisers in the conquered territories will be discussed using both documentary and archaeological evidence. The transfer of new populations, the organisation of the agricultural areas linked to new fortresses, the establishment of Christian settlers coming from Occitania and elsewhere, and the military aspects of the colonisation in different areas of the former Crown of Aragon will be addressed in this session.
