Abstract

We are pleased to present the fi rst volume of MMM, Medieval and Modern Matters, a new journal of medieval
and post-medieval archaeology and material culture studies in Belgium and the Netherlands, also referred to as
Th e Low Countries. The journal aims at presenting new research and new data related to this region.
Th e journal wants to provide an international forum for these research eff orts, the new excavations and new
evidence, the new interpretations and new and interesting perspectives on themes of international interest, such as
rural development, the rise and development of the town and the urban world, material culture and lifestyle, and
the ways in which material objects act as markers of identity, social status and components of behaviour. Moreover
we intend to provide a forum for the study of major social, economic and cultural processes of the Middle Ages
and the Modern period such as religious transformation, commercialisation and changing group cultures, so as to
provide a counterbalance to the fragmentation of present archaeological practices and perspectives.
