Abstract/Summary

This paper argues that strategies for environmental exploitation developed by the Teutonic Order in the eastern Baltic, following the crusades, were fundamental to the development and sustainability of its domains. It draws on a suite of environmental archaeology and written data gathered within the framework of the "Ecology of Crusading" project.
