Third digital session of 'Somewhere beyond the sea', the Belgo-British Research Network for Medieval Urban History.

For the third meeting of 'Somewhere beyond the sea', the Belgo-British Digital Research Network for Medieval Urban History, we have the pleasure of hosting Elisa Bonduel (Ghent University) who will speak on 'Overseas trade during the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. The value of the oldest Flemish toll tariffs'.

Elisa is a PhD student at the Henri Pirenne Institute for Medieval Studies at Ghent University. Her research focuses on the import of bulk goods into late medieval Flanders. She is especially interested in the history of crafts and guilds, migration history and the social and economic history of the medieval Low Countries. Her project, under the supervision of prof. Jan Dumolyn (History) and prof. Wim De Clercq (Archaeology) is part of the larger interdisciplinary project 'High Tide - Low Tide. Bruges’ late-medieval harbour system as a maritime cultural landscape'.

The digital sessions are free and open to all. Get in touch with the coordinator if you want to join: .

Somewhere beyond the sea is an initiative of the Henri Pirenne Institute for Medieval Studies at Ghent University and the School of History at Queen Mary University London.
