|Title:||The Assembly Project - Meeting-places in Northern Europe AD 400-1500|
|Abstract:||The Assembly Project – Meeting-places in Northern Europe AD 400-1500 (TAP) is an international collaborative research project. TAP aims to investigate the role of assemblies (things) in the creation of collective identities and emergent kingdoms in medieval Northern Europe (AD 400-1500). Main research questions are: What was the role of assemblies (things) in the creation, consolidation and maintenance of collective identities, emergent polities and kingdoms in early medieval Northern European populations and communities?
The project will, in its entirety, contribute an entirely new combined data set for the study of early governance and administrative organisation in the societies of North West Europe. It will achieve a range of objectives including:
- the establishment of a relative chronology of assembly sites
- new knowledge on the role of assemblies in processes of territorialisation.
- a study of how law and collective norms and values were established and
enforced onto colonised/conquered areas.
- a study of gender perspective concerning power relations and assembly
- a historiography of assemblies and their relevance to the concepts of national identity and statehood
