Recesses of Low German cities

City meetings, also known as day trips, were among the most important events in the political landscape of the Middle Ages and the early modern period. This applies in particular to the cities dominated by Low German merchants, whose most famous and largest day trips were the Hanseatic Days. The archival records that have emerged from them are correspondingly extensive. The aim of the project is to first use the recesses to record the final documents of the meetings and to sound out the possibilities of their indexing and publication in order to make them accessible to research and the interested public.
