Since 1985, Spanish archaeology has radically improved its organisation and effectiveness, supported by law and the transfer of powers to deal with archaeology from central to regional governments. There have been many excavations on development sites in towns and the countryside, but also new studies of rural landscapes and monuments. As in other European countries, this has produced a mountain of as yet undigested information about the history and archaeology of this fascinating country over four centuries. Now two Spanish archaeologists, aided by a large number of colleagues in Spain, France, Germany and Britain, have produced the first survey in either English or Spanish of the last 30 years of investigations, new discoveries and new theories. Chapters deal with the rural and urban habitat, daily life, trade and technology, castles and fortifications, the display of secular power and all three religions of medieval Spain: Islam, Christianity and Judaism. This is a major contribution to the archaeology of medieval Europe and a handbook for archaeologists and travelers.

The spread of Islam and the process of Islamisation (meaning both conversion to Islam and the adoption of Muslim culture) is explored in the twenty-four chapters of this volume. Taking a comparative perspective, both the historical trajectory of Islamisation and the methodological problems in its study are addressed, with coverage moving from Africa to China and from the seventh century to the start of the colonial period in 1800. Key questions are addressed. What is meant by Islamisation? How far was the spread of Islam as a religion bound up with the spread of Muslim culture? To what extent are Islamisation and conversion parallel processes? How is Islamisation connected to Arabisation? What role do vernacular Muslim languages play in the promotion of Muslim culture? The broad, comparative perspective allows readers to develop a thorough understanding of the process of Islamisation over eleven centuries of its history.

Medieval Welsh Pilgrimage, c.1100–1500 examines one of the most popular expressions of religious belief in medieval Europe—from the promotion of particular sites for political, religious, and financial reasons to the experience of pilgrims and their impact on the Welsh landscape. Addressing a major gap in Welsh Studies, Kathryn Hurlock peels back the historical and religious layers of these holy pilgrimage sites to explore what motivated pilgrims to visit these particular sites, how family and locality drove the development of certain destinations, what pilgrims expected from their experience, how they engaged with pilgrimage in person or virtually, and what they saw, smelled, heard, and did when they reached their ultimate goal.

This is a wide-ranging and original collection of essays on early modern migration. The contributors, including Bernard Bailyn, Ned Landsman, L.M. Cullen, and Nicolas Sanchez-Albornoz, examine the scale and character of migration from a range of countries. Besides collectively finding that such migration more often led to an early death than to a quick fortune, the essays also suggest that the period 1500-1800 was transitional between the narrowly focused migration of the medieval period and the mass migration of the nineteenth century.

Der Band behandelt die Geschichte der aus dem gesamten mitteleuropaischen Raum stammenden Einwanderer in das Florenz des Spatmittelalters (ca. 1350-1500). Anhand einer Vielzahl von Quellen (vor allem der Bruderschaftsmatrikeln, aber auch der fiskalischen und notariellen Uberlieferung) wird gezeigt, dab dieses Phanomen weitaus wichtiger war als bisher angenommen. Nicht nur aus dem niederrheinisch-niederlandischen Bereich stammende Weber, sondern auch suddeutsche Schuster, sowie andere deutsche Handwerker und Kunstler arbeiteten in der Stadt in einem fruchtbaren kulturellen Austausch. Anhand des Beispiels des aus Nurnberg stammenden Ubersetzers von Boccaccios 'Decamerone' (des sog. 'Arigo') wird gezeigt, wie das nach 1480 entstehende neue Klima auch die beruflichen Moglichkeiten veranderte, trat dieser doch nunmehr unter dem Namen Henricus Martellus' vor allem als Zeichner detaillierter geographischer Karten hervor.
