The conference has been part of Priority Program 1630 »Harbours« funded by the German Research Foundation. The papers deal with the archaeological, historical and geographical analysis of specific harbours and ships, harbour systems of selected rivers and lakes as well as larger harbour networks and their interplay with other infrastructure. The case studies cover a wide geographic range from Scandinavia to the Mediterranean with a particular focus on France and Germany.
