Why did the political landscape of northern Europe, within only a few generations, transform from a rural landscape with small market places to a network of advanced urban settlements of high political significance?
Who were the people instigating the transition from rural to urban lifeforms; where did they originate; and how did the social transformation to urbanism affect their way of living?
In this project, we investigate the social complexity of medieval north European urbanisation through bio-archaeological reconstructions of human biographies.
