Building States on the Iberian Frontier

Between January and March 2013 I wrote a series of posts trying to clarify what I saw as the important factors in frontier settlement and take-over of settlements in ninth- to eleventh-century Spain. They then took more than a year to actually go up on the blog, by which time I’d turned two of them into a short article, but nonetheless, they have some good stuff in and I thought it would be useful to have them easy to find. So, here are the links. They were:

  1. Building States on the Iberian Frontier, I: putting the peasants up front
  2. Building States on the Iberian Frontier II: clearing the land
  3. Building States on the Iberian Frontier III: who’s a lord and who’s not?
  4. Building States on the Iberian Frontier IV: what’s going on
  5. Building States on the Iberian Frontier V: what lords and peasants did in Catalonia

If there are ever any more, you can be sure they’ll be listed here too.
