Chapter: Assembling the Medieval Village

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.27742


This chapter draws on a relational perspective to recount a history of multiscalar interaction at Diouboye over three phases of occupation during the early-2nd millennium. The political strategies of houses at the microscale—some more network, some more corporate—entangled them in mesoscale and macroscale relations extending outwards to neighboring settlements, imperial polities, and long-distance trade networks that made up the medieval mosaic of the Western Sudan.
