Chapter Summary

This chapter highlights local and regional economies. It maps the complex retail market of thirteenth-century Paris, with excursions across the Channel to England, using didactic and dictaminal texts to showcase evidence related to trade. The chapter focuses on three such texts, all of which were published in the nineteenth century. Together, these texts provide a rich array of information on trades, crafts, shops and shopping in Paris and England in the early thirteenth century. The chapter discusses the shifting social functions and juridical definitions of property in the rapidly changing economic environment of late medieval Ghent. Finally, drawing on a range of documentary and archaeological evidence, the chapter creates a detailed profile of the market-garden economy of late medieval Lübeck. The following sites are of particular importance: St. Johanniskloster, Hundestrasse, and Alfstrasse/Schüsselbuden. These three sites contained the highest number of species.

Keywords: didactic text; Hundestrasse; Lübeck; late medieval Ghent; market-garden economy; St. Johanniskloster; thirteenth-century Paris
