Please post in the forum for the day a short essay in response to this question:

Here are some links to different sources relating to people moving from one country to another in the period under discussion. Some correspond with the larger trends we've seen, some do not. The question here — and this points to your upcoming primary-source investigations — is not so much a general one about the migration as such, but rather the historiographical question, what kinds of information does each of these show us? You don't have to be thorough: it probably would be impossible, at any rate. What we'd most like you to consider is what kinds of questions they individually might raise and/or answer.

Mostly this not-quite-a-question is an invitation to explore a bit and to speculate on where these sources could take you.
