From Middle Ages to the beginning of modern times, Hanseatic cities had constituted a league which were more important for trade development in North Europe than any other economic alliance before. Throughout the Hanse, citizens and merchants from Novgorod ( East) to London ( West) were linked to German, Polish and Belgian cities The main innovation in shipping technology of the Early Middle Ages, the "kogge", became symbol of Hanseatic League activities. These boats were able to carry more goods than any ship in Europe.
