Description

Medieval society may appear to have been deeply divided by war, cultural and religious conflict. Yet the literary and archaeological sources reveal shared cultural norms and material culture across these divides. This session will explore these themes of contact and conflict across cultures. The researchers speaking in this session are at the forefront of research on medieval European diplomacy, the crusades and warfare both in Europe and in the eastern Mediterranean, exploring confrontations and co-operation between cultures and faiths. This session offers a showcase of their research on war, diplomacy and material culture in medieval Europe and the Middle East, focusing on topics such as treaties and trade, the customary law of war, and the development of artillery and fortifications in the eastern Mediterranean.
