Summary

Abstract

This chapter offers an overview of the history of human migration, conditions pertaining to past migrations, and the types of evidence that allow their study. The importance of scales of time and space is illustrated by ‘standing still’ for a thousand years at a busy crossroads in Europe, and observing the emergence of new social forms. How can these observations help to anticipate and formulate responses to contemporary population movements?
