Migration has been integral to the development of human societies through time, but little collaboration exists between scholars examining contemporary and past migrations. Were migrations radically different in ancient and modern contexts? This cohesive collection bridges the past and present to analyse the extent to which environmental and social disruptions have been a cause of migration over time and whether these migratory flows have in turn led to disruptive consequences for the societies that receive them.
