Abstract

The research presented in this paper is part of the doctoral research of the author and focuses on the maritime cultural landscape of the former Zuiderzee (the Netherlands) between AD 1100 and 1400. The main aim of this research is to reconstruct the medieval landscape and habitation by combining archaeological, historic and geological datasets. Involvement of geographic information systems like ArcGIS is necessary for combining the different datasets. The results of the interdisciplinary and spatial analyses show distinct patterns between the past landscape, habitation and transportation. The preliminary results of the research were presented at the International Symposium on Boat and Ship Archaeology (ISBSA) 14 in Gdańsk, Poland (September 2015).
