The course provides an overview of the topics of Medieval Archaeology. It allows a critical approach to material culture and archaeological sources of the medieval period and their interpretative process, also through interdisciplinary comparison with written sources. Lectures provide an economic and social picture of the early Middle Ages through exchanges and trade between the Mediterranean and North European worlds. We want to underline the economic-social transformations, observing the circulation of goods and people, the paths and the productive systems.
The advanced course will be structured in three parts:
1) general picture of the economic system: from Pirenne to McCormick. Scientific Ideas and positions on Trade in Early Middle Ages. Local economic systems: productions between luxury goods, food and landscapes.
2) Examples and Case Studies: The Status of Research.
3) recognize products and materials: study and recognition of archaeological finds of medieval times.
The exam will be conducted with an interview aimed at assessing the general knowledge of the discipline, scientific terminology and the ability to critically analyze the data.
