AbstractStudies of migrants, refugees, and minorities are common in modern politics and geography. Similar studies can be carried out on medieval settlements, informing us of their social makeup and social cohesion. This session will explore how studies of medieval settlements can illuminate the social relationships within the villages and the position that those on the edges of society occupied within the village.
