Chapter Summary

This chapter provides an overview of fourth part of the book. It explores the crucial part played by sex, gender and the life-cycle in organising Merovingian society in northern Gaul, especially during the sixth century. The book follows up points about the acquisition of gendered identity and other forms of social status by looking at childhood and adolescence in Merovingian Gaul. All chapters lay some stress upon the important changes that took place in Gaul, as elsewhere, around 600.

Keywords: Gaul; gender; Merovingian Social Organisation
