Abstract

Border has been characterized for being a place of people’s movement. Iberian peninsula was one of the places where this type of contacts proliferated the most during the Late Middle Age. Businessmen and diplomats were the main agents that circulated between these borders. In this session, will be presented different case studies about these characters, focusing on analyse transnational relations between kingdoms, their territorial involvement, motivations for contacts and how all affected the definition of border.
