This volume presents an interdisciplinary collection of studies on the lands "east of the Elbe," a region without a Roman past, focusing on the connections between human populations and the natural world. A broad variety of approaches and methodologies drawn from the fields of archaeology, history, palaeobotany, and palaeozoology illuminate the history and development of these landscapes in the middle ages.
