dc.descriptionTrabajo presentado en la 26th EAA Virtual Annual Meeting (European Association of Archaeologists), celebrada online del 24 al 30 de agosto de 2020.-
dc.description.abstractBetween the 11th and the 16th centuries AD, the south-eastern half of the Horn of Africa was home to a number of Muslim states which extended their authority over very diverse geographical and ethnically regions, providing stability for trade and challenging the powerful Christian kingdom of Abyssinia to the north. They also acted as one the key actors of the international trade which connected the interior of Africa with the Mediterranean region, Middle East and Asia. Based on the six years of research of the Spanish Archaeological Mission in Somaliland, this paper will explore the archaeological evidences of the diverse ethnic groups, religions and lifestyles which inhabited these Muslim medieval kingdoms, and the ways in which these communities interacted among them and with the state structures. Using the example of nomads, urban dwellers and foreign merchants in western Somaliland, it will present an interpretation of how these interactions could have taken place, from the trading posts of the Somaliland coast to the agriculture-based settlements of inner Somaliland, as well as the elusive but widespread nomadic archaeology. It will also analyze the processes of emergency and consolidation of states throughout the Horn of Africa, both in the Somali region and the Ethiopian highlands, and the role they played in regional and international contexts during the Middle Ages and Modern Ages.-
