Framing the Late Antique and Early Medieval Economy Conference - April 29th-May 1st

Event date: 
April 29, 2016 (All day) to May 1, 2016 (All day)

This project will investigate the transition from Late Antiquity to the Early Middle Ages, covering Western Eurasia and North Africa over four centuries, from an innovative economical perspective. It will look closely and carefully into the changes in economy while using the most widely available - and underutilized - proxy, metal coinage, surviving in millions of published specimens.
