AbstractThis session will explore some of the topics on the edges of medieval society and modern research, from material culture to marginal landscapes. These papers hope to broaden the focus of research into medieval society. Most of the papers will consider landscapes on the edges of medieval society and therefore seen as 'other' to the often studied fields and villages. There will also be a consideration of identity and memory, and how these are constructed through landscapes and objects.
