Project description

Around 1107, Flemings moved to Wales to plant settlements with striking similarities to those in Flanders. This research will use a cross-disciplinary landscape archeological approach to understand how Flemish planning traditions were modified in response to traditions and environments outside Flanders. For the first time, the emigration out of medieval Flanders will be studied in an archeological and landscape perspective.
