Chapter Summary

This chapter covers the regions stretching from the Baltic to the Adriatic Sea in one direction and from Saxony to the Grand Duchy of Lithuania in the other. It would appear in the light of present-day research that in the territories of Central-Eastern and Eastern Europe during the early Middle Ages conditions for economic development were less favourable than those of Western Europe. As a result rural economy and urbanization progressed less in the territories over a long period. The XIIth century and particularly the XIIIth century brought radical changes in the situation in Central-Eastern Europe which then entered the stage of faster economic growth. The chapter explains the development of iron foundries and, linked to that, the production of agricultural implements in (Malopolska) Galicia, by the XIVth century at the latest, in the same way.

Keywords: central-eastern Europe; economic growth; middle ages
