Description


Varied approaches to an overlooked time
period in the history and archaeology of the Mediterranean

This
book presents multidisciplinary perspectives on Greece, Corsica, Malta, and
Sicily from the fourth to the thirteenth centuries, an often-overlooked time in
the history of the central Mediterranean. The research approaches and areas of
specialization collected here range from material culture to landscape
settlement patterns, from epigraphy to architecture and architectural
decoration, and from funerary archaeology to urban fabric and cityscapes.

Topics
covered in these chapters include late Roman villas; the formation of Byzantine
and Islamic settlements in western Sicily; reuse of protohistoric sites in
late antiquity and the middle ages in eastern Sicily; early Christian
landscapes and settlements in Corsica; the transition from late antiquity
through Byzantine rule to Muslim conquest in Malta; trade network trajectories
of the Aegean islands and Crete; and crosscultural interactions in medieval
Greece. Together, these essays show the potential of post-Ancient and
post-Classical archaeology, highlighting missing links between the Roman world
and medieval Byzantium and broadening the horizons of new generations of
archaeologists.
