Description

"Markets, Fairs, and Merchant Travel in the Fourteenth Century" - This session will cover the structure and nature of markets, fairs, and commercial travel during the fourteenth century, and will address economic, political, and social issues, among others. The session will provide a venue for scholars working on medieval markets to share the results of their current research and to develop or enhance relationships with other scholars in this field. The consideration of new research in such a session is important not only for our understanding of the fourteenth century, but also for the understanding of our current financial and commodities markets and economic institutions and instruments.
