Archaeology of the Medieval World: Sources and Cities

13. June 2024, 18:15 bis 20:00

The archaeology of the medieval world, and of historical periods in general, often has an ambivalent relationship with pasts derived from other available sources. On the one hand, interpreting the archaeological record requires external evidence, thus texts and oral traditions may become important anchors. On the other hand, archaeologists frequently struggle to integrate their findings with those of history and anthropology, and the latter usually dominate in discourses on the past.

This seminar’s primary aim is to discuss various approaches to this challenge in different archaeological sub-disciplines. With a particular focus on ‘cities’, the seminar will introduce case studies in which a gap can be found between archaeology and other sources. The meetings will present different studies from Asia, Africa and Europe which are conducted by scholars from African, Islamic, Byzantine, Indian, and medieval European archaeologies.
