Book Description

24 Sep 2015
"The Byzantine Dark Ages" explores current debates about the sudden transformation of the Byzantine Empire in the wake of environmental, social, and political changes. Those studying the Byzantine Empire, the successor to the Roman Empire in the eastern Mediterranean, have long recognized that the mid-seventh century C.E. ushered in sweeping variations in the way of life of many inhabitants of the Mediterranean world, with evidence of the decline of the size and economic prosperity of cities, a sharp fall in expressions of literary culture, the collapse in trade networks, and economic and political instability."The Byzantine Dark Ages" looks at the material evidence for the seventh to ninth centuries, lays out the current academic discourse about its interpretation, and suggests new ways of thinking about this crucial era. Important to readers interested in understanding how and why complex societies and imperial systems undergo and adapt to stresses, this clearly written, accessible work will also challenge students of archaeology and history to think in new ways in comprehending the construction of the past.
