Call for papers: EAA 2018 (Barcelona, 5-8 september)

Dear colleagues:
We are pleased to invite you to submit a paper proposal to the session we are organizing in the framework of the 24th Annual Meeting of the European Association of Archaeologists which will be held in Barcelona, 5-8 September 2018.


Abstract: Churches and monasteries are one of the most commonly studied structures in Medieval Archaeology and thousands of excavations have provide
architecture and material culture across Europe. However it has been much less explored how this wide variety of Christian buildings (chapels, local churches, monasteries, oratories...) influenced (or were influenced by) their surroun political or symbolic terms. There has been a reluctance to look up from the site plans and to consider the wider context in which the site was founded and functioned. This session will explore this topic by means of highlight and discuss the variety of relations and contexts between ecclesiastical buildings and their surrounding medieval landscapes. Topics to be covered include (but are not limited to): the interrelation between different groups of churches, the archaeology of dependences outside the monastic walls, the physical transformation of the landscapes by ecclesiastical institutions, (new crops, marshland drainage, bridges, the setting up of new eco salt production), strategies of Christianisation of the landscapes and the adaptation of pre-Christian sacred elements. In addition to the papers presented (15 minutes each), a final discussion will be promoted in order to
explained in this session.
