This book seeks to offer an overview of the archaeological and structural evidence for one of the most vital periods of Italian history, spanning the late Roman and early medieval periods. The chronological scope covers the adoption of Christianity and the emergence of Rome as the seat of Western Christendom, the break-up of the Roman west, and the impact of Germanic and Byzantine rule on Italy. Too long neglected as a 'Dark Age', Dr Christie's work helps to further illuminate this fascinating and dynamic period of European history.
