AbstractThe overall aim of this and its two linked sessions is to explore the origins, functions, and influence of medieval palace-cities across Japan, Europe, and the Middle East, in order to identify similarities and differences. This session aims to explore the cultural impact of palace-cities in terms of: the development of characteristic forms of material culture in palace-cities; the role of workshops and scholarly centres in them; and the impact of rulers' collecting and patronage on them.
