Description

The North Atlantic of the Middle Ages was all about connections: social, cultural, political, literary, religious, artistic, economic. We can see this in manuscript transmission, literary influences, travel narratives, chronicles, in the archaeological record and DNA, in personal links and political ones. This interdisciplinary session welcomes discussions of any aspect of such connections: actual, proposed, encouraged, imagined, depicted, recounted, foretold, frustrated, feared, forbidden.
