Meeting Description: Based on historical sources, toponyms, and linguistic variation in the dialect of the Dutch coastal provinces, Flanders, Zealand and Holland, we know that these coastal areas of the Low Countries used to be Frisian speaking in the Early Middle Ages, or rather, these dialects used to have an Ingveonic character. This colloquium aims to bring together several sub-disciplines, such as archeology, geography, history and linguistics, in order to discuss, how the Frankish, non-Inveaonic, language from the inland took over as the dominant language in the coastal provinces.

Please note that the colloquium will be mostly in Dutch.
