Item description for The Long Eighth Century (Transformation of the Roman World) by Inge Lyse Hansen & Chris Wickham...
An assessment of the eighth century as a period of economic history. The 12 papers in this volume range over the whole of Europe and the Mediterranean from Denmark to Palestine, covering Francia, Italy and Byzantium on the way. They examine regional economies and associated political structures, that is to say the whole network of production, exchange, and social relations in each area. They offer authoritative overviews of both traditional and modern work, and as a whole, they show how the eighth century was the first century when the post-Roman world can clearly be seen to have emerged, in the regional economies of each part of Europe.
