Historian Juhan Kreem's lecture "Wandering in the Middle Ages. Exceptional and mundane"

Although medieval man is generally considered to be predominantly stationary, even then there were many areas of life where travel, even over long distances, is more of a routine. The lecture outlines various social groups (rulers, clergy, merchants, artisans, soldiers, etc.) and the reasons for their mobility. In addition to the mundane reconstruction of the circumstances related to travel, we also look at how travel influenced the perception of space, the worldview.
