International Conference

VII International Conference about Medieval Archaeology of Northern Iberia

Demography, Paleopathology and Social inequality during Middle Ages in Northern Iberia

Vitoria-Gasteiz, 6th and 7th November 2014

In the last decade an important number of regional and local osteoarchaeological studies have been conducted in medieval archaeological sites of northern Iberia, although there is a lack of synthesis centred on demography, paleopatologhy and, broadly speaking, lifestyle of medieval populations. The aim of this conference is to bring together the leading scholars active in these issues to determined the state of the research and suggest new lines of work for the future. The conference has been organized by the Research Group of Heritage and Cultural Landscapes of the University of the Basque Country, within the research project “Social Inequality in the Northern Iberia Landscapes” funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness. The starting hypothesis is that osteoarchaeological record is a powerful means for the historical study of social inequality. The three main areas of discussion in the conference will be the analyses of historical demography based on archaeological sources, the paleopathology and lifestyles of medieval populations and the integration of both branches in the analysis of social inequality. The main aim of the conference is to formulate historical synthesis of northern Iberia, taking into account the important territorial studies undertaken in the last years.
