AbstractThis is the first of a two session series aiming to discuss the social organisation of Andalusi and Christian frontier societies in Medieval Iberia. Among others, issues concerning agricultural landscapes and productions, the military aspects of the conquest and colonisation, and the settlement of new colonisers in the conquered territories will be discussed using both documentary and archaeological evidence. In this specific panel the organisation of the frontier of Al-Andalus will be the main concern. The chronological framework between the 8th and the 13th centuries embraces the Muslim conquest and the role of cities and fortresses in the frontier organisation until the Christian conquest in the late 13th century. Finally, the impact of the Christian conquest will be also considered.
