1.3. Urban and Manor Material Culture in the Middle Ages and Early Modern Period.

(b) Strategic research priority 2: Social and Cultural Change in the Southeast Baltic Region from the Middle Ages to the Present Day brings together four research groups working on the following topics:
2.1. Social Transformations in Contact Zones;
