AbstractThis is the second of two sessions on different meanings of 'borders' in early medieval European societies. Paper A explores the development of diplomatic and military exchanges between the Umayyad caliphate and the Christian polities of León and Pamplona in the 10th and early 11th centuries. Paper B discusses the presence and role of Andalusi luxury objects in 11th-century wills and pro anima donations near the border of al-Andalus. Paper C re-examines the social impact of increasing monetisation in late 10th- and 11th-century Europe, arguing for a link with more assertive practices of domination.
