Inland Harbours in Central Europe: Nodes between Northern Europe and the Mediterranean Sea

International conference, 1-2 december 2016, Maison des Sciences de l´Homme (MSH) de Dijon within the framework of the Special Research Programme (DFG-SPP 1630) »Harbours from the Roman Period to the Middle Ages«

Inland harbours as gateways between water and land are crucial nodes for mobility and economic exchange in Antiquity as well as in the Middle Ages. This volume is a collection of 20 papers given in 2016 at the international conference »Inland harbours in Central Europe: Nodes between Northern Europe and the Mediterranean Sea« in Dijon (University of Burgundy, France).

- Inland harbours in Antiquity and the Middle Ages
- Their role for mobility and economic exchange

The conference has been part of Priority Program 1630 »Harbours« funded by the German Research Foundation. The papers deal with the archaeological, historical and geographical analysis of specific harbours and ships, harbour systems of selected rivers and lakes as well as larger harbour networks and their interplay with other infrastructure. The case studies cover a wide geographic range from Scandinavia to the Mediterranean with a particular focus on France and Germany.
