Welcome to the website of the Society for the Medieval Mediterranean. 

The society is dedicated to all aspects of the academic study of Mediterranean history and culture, from the fifth to the fifteenth centuries C.E. It aims to foster cross cultural and inter-disciplinary investigation, create a forum of ideas and encourage debate on intercommunal and transnational crosspollination within the Medieval Mediterranean.

We hope that these pages will provide all the information you require but if you have any questions or comments, then please don't hesitate to contact us.
