Workshop Event: 3rd May 2011
This workshop intends to re-examine selected European peripheries and frontier zones during a period when Europe as a political and geographical entity was in its formative stage, with political, religious and economic power oscillating between strong centres, and a huge array of regions keen to preserve their distinct political, cultural and economic identities. It will look at the role of warfare on the border, webs of dynastic alliances, religious links and hierarchies, and political rights and treaties in these areas, as well as the actors who drove the history of peripheral regions.
