Although first experiences of historical analysis of bioarchaeological remains from southern European medieval sites were done at least in the 70s, this type of studies keeps being episodic and very specific. Therefore, the contribution of bioarchaeological disciplines to the understanding of past societies is still biased. The backwardness compared to other European countries or to Prehistoric archaeology is evident. The interpretation of basic subjects of historical landscapes, productive practices and social dynamics is made on the basis of textual documentation or of the reflection of these aspects on the archaeology of sites and monuments. Nevertheless, in the last years, the number of specialists and researchers who study historical societies has been increased and, as a consequence, a significant amount of data and studies has come to light, although these works are generally dispersed and the lack of syntheses is remarkable.

The aims of this conference are, on the one hand, to elaborate regional syntheses about the articulation of early medieval landscapes in Spain on a European context, and on the other hand, to analyse farming and animal husbandry practices in the Early Middle Ages using bioarchaeological remains from Spain and other European regions. Thus, we pretend to re-think the social history of the Early Middle Ages from a perspective that appreciates the diversity and dynamism of peasant communities, unlike the primitive approaches that are still predominant for the characterization of these groups.

To do so, some of the most renowned European specialists have been invited to take part in the conference, having the disciplinary diversity as a priority. Young researchers will also participate in the congress. In addition, we plan to organise a poster session in order to welcome specific studies on these matters.
