Abstract

This is the third 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 different productive and commercial activities, the management of agricultural stocks by Muslim and Christian populations and the role of cashcrops in the kingdoms of Granada and Murcia before and after the Castilian conquest will be especifically addressed. This session completes the broad chronological as well as geographical span of this panel series.
