    Long dismissed as a backwater, increased study of the Rhine Delta in the Early Middle Ages has revealed considerable wealth and prosperity in even the most isolated of sites. The 6th–8th century Merovingian settlement at Oegstgeest is a good example of such. Despite its seeming remoteness and small size, its excavation found evidence for the creation and importation of quality goods, seemingly without any connection to existing elite structures. This study examined one aspect of this prosperity (iron working) to gain a better understanding of the role of Oegstgeest within its socioeconomic environment. Metallurgical and chemical characterisation was undertaken on thirteen metal samples and twenty-three slag samples from Oegstgeest. The results of this study established the use of quality metals and advanced forging techniques. This suggests that the inhabitants of Oegstgeest had the required contacts to obtain such materials, as well as the presence of skilled artisans with the time and demand to put their experience into practice. Further study found definite evidence of iron and copper alloys being worked in tandem. A provenance study was also undertaken on the metallic samples. Possible matches were established between the material from Oegstgeest with Lorraine in Eastern France as well as a potential connection to Southern Germany. In short, the results of this study suggest complement that of other the other finds of the settlement, suggesting that Oegstgeest was integrated into regional trade networks of the Early Middle Ages.

    This historical overview uses a political ecology approach to examine agricultural change over time in Northwest Cambodia. It focuses on key historical periods, actors, and processes that continue to shape power, land, and farming relations in the region, emphasizing the relevance of this history for contemporary investments in agricultural extension services and research as part of the Zero Hunger by 2030 policy agenda for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). Agricultural extension projects need to engage critically with historically complex and dynamic power, land, and farming relations – not only as the basis of social relations but as central to understanding the contemporary manifestation of farmer decision making and practice. Initiatives such as the SDGs replicate long histories of externally driven power-relations that orient benefits from changed practices towards elites in urban centers or distant global actors. Efforts to realize zero hunger by 2030 are endangered by neglect for the path-dependency of power-land-farming relations, which stretch from the past into the present to structure farmer decision making and practice.

    Maria Susan Rye (1829–1903) was the founder of the Female Emigration Society in Victorian Britain. A charismatic women’s migration organiser, she claimed that “imperial migration”—defined by the press and Victorian authorities as internal human mobility within the British Empire as opposed to “emigration”, outside the contours of the British Empire—was the most promising opportunity for unmarried British gentlewomen. An intermediary of migration, Rye did not perform gender as women of her time were expected to and she was thus framed as ambivalent and unfeminine, troubling gender norms and social expectations imposed on Victorian men and women. Indeed, her physical appearance and her perceived unwomanly behaviour and activities (she spoke in public, used the press to attack her opponents, and worked in migration) were often commented upon by her detractors. The objective of this article is to introduce a new historical method on gender performance in migration studies by focusing on the elements that contributed to frame Rye as a non-normative “deviant” woman. This paper resorts to Butler’s gender performativity and arguments on the exclusiveness of male/female binary to revisit the figure of Rye from a non-binary perspective and underline the fluidity of gender. Through the case study of Rye, whose femininity was framed as nonconforming to Victorian ideals, I show the construction of her multiple femininities and look into the correlation between migration and gender identity in the context of Victorian migration brokerage.

The 6th–8th century Merovingian settlement at Oegstgeest is a good example of such. Despite its seeming remoteness and small size, its excavation found evidence for the creation and importation of quality goods, seemingly without any connection to existing elite structures. This study examined one aspect of this prosperity (iron working) to gain a better understanding of the role of Oegstgeest within its socioeconomic environment. Metallurgical and chemical characterisation was undertaken on thirteen metal samples and twenty-three slag samples from Oegstgeest. The results of this study established the use of quality metals and advanced forging techniques. This suggests that the inhabitants of Oegstgeest had the required contacts to obtain such materials, as well as the presence of skilled artisans with the time and demand to put their experience into practice. Further study found definite evidence of iron and copper alloys being worked in tandem. A provenance study was also undertaken on the metallic samples. Possible matches were established between the material from Oegstgeest with Lorraine in Eastern France as well as a potential connection to Southern Germany. In short, the results of this study suggest complement that of other the other finds of the settlement, suggesting that Oegstgeest was integrated into regional trade networks of the Early Middle Ages.
