The Medieval Low Countries. History, Archaeology, Art and Literature is a peer-reviewed journal featuring articles on the Low Countries (viewed in its broadest sense as the estuaries of Scheldt, Meuse, Rhine and IJssel with their corresponding hinterlands), from the start of the fifth to the second half of the sixteenth century. During these centuries this was one of the major centers of economic, cultural, religious and social development in Europe. By publishing the best of new scholarship concerning the region over the course of the Middle Ages, The Medieval Low Countries makes these achievements more fully visible and helps display the connections between changes in each domain. At the same time, the journal provides a forum for exchange and cooperation between established and upcoming scholars in several disciplines, whether in Europe, the United States, or beyond.
MLC is a continuation of the journals Millennium, Jaarboek voor Middeleeuwse Geschiedenis, and Medieval and Modern Matters: Archaeology and Material Culture in the Low Countries.
