The city of Ichijôdani served as the capital of Echizen Province for approximately one century during Japan’s late medieval period. It was a vibrant and successful urban center built around the residential complex of a warlord (daimyo) who had seized power in the civil wars of the late 15th century. This presentation will introduce the history and archaeology of the city and its residents, then consider the implications of its complete destruction in 1573 as part of Japan’s “unification” process.
