Learning Objectives

The study of the late antique and early medieval campaign in the recent years, has an important development and allowed an extensive overhaul of the knowledge about the characteristics and organization of the territory and its transformations between the fourth and the eighth centuries.

Similarly they have increased knowledge on the structure of the city between the V and the X century, with a marked difference between the late antique city (V - VII century) and the early medieval cities (VIII - X century) .

The course wants to go through a key issue in the Medieval Archaeology, first about the transformation of the territory, incastellation and the city between the late antique and early Middle Ages, and then taking into account the latest development of studies on the subject, providing the tools to understand and to interpret critically the archaeological sources.

the passage from antiquity to the middle ages; cities and rural areas: reading of the transformations between Late Antiquity and High M.; villages and late antique villas; the end of the villas; the barbarian settlement in the countryside; encastellation; churches and settlements; the city and its transformations; study of artifacts and architectural structures.
