Abstract

This session, by focusing on the specifics of three geographic areas, seeks to highlight the significant role and impact of border warfare – politically, socially, and economically – in the late Middle Ages. Individual papers investigate the complex military relationship between Naples and the Byzantine Empire and the economic impact of ongoing border warfare on communities along the Scottish marches.
