    The Hanseatic Economic Area is defined as the area between England and Flanders in the West and Western Russia in the East, between the Scandinavian countries in the North and the Central German area in the South, where the majority of Hanseatic merchants pursued economic interests. This study was carried out as part of a joint project entitled ´Economic fluctuations in the hanseatic Economic area between 1300-1800´. This joint research project was funded by the Volkswagen Foundation as part of its funding priority ´Research on Early Modern History: The Old Reich in a European Context´.
