The study of late antiquity and early medieval campaigns has had an important development in recent years that has allowed to deeply renew knowledge about the characteristics and organization of the territory and its transformations between IV and VIII century.
Likewise, knowledge of the structure of the city between the 5th and the 10th centuries has increased, with a profound difference between the late Roman city (V-VII century) and the Upper Medieval City (VIII-X century).
The course aims to deepen a fundamental theme in the field of Medieval Archeology, that of the transformation of the territory between late antiquity and high middle age, taking into account the latest developments of the studies on the subject and providing at the same time the tools to comprehend and interpret in spirit critical the archaeological sources.
