Medieval and Post-Medieval Ceramics in the Eastern Mediterranean - Fact and Fiction
Transactions of the First International Conference on Byzantine and Ottoman Archaeology, held in Amsterdam on 21-23 October 2011.
 

The focus in this varied collection of studies by key scholars in the field is on the material culture (especially ceramics) of the eastern Mediterranean during Medieval and Post-Medieval times. The scope of the contributions encompasses archaeological remains of the Byzantine Empire, the Islamic World, the Crusader States, the Republic of Venice and the Ottoman Empire. The volume offers a state of the art of an often still hardly known territory in archaeology, which makes it essential reading for scholars and a larger audience alike.

'This volume brings together a pivotal generation, seeking to provide this millennium and a half with new voices' - Richard Hodges.

Includes contributions by John Bennet, Beate Böhlendorf-Arslan, Véronique François, Alexandra Gaba-van Dongen, Smadar Gabrieli, Sauro Gelichi, Deborah Harlan, Richard Hodges, Fotini Kondyli, Nikos D. Kontogiannis, Pagona Papadopoulou, Demetra Papanikola-Bakirtzi, Scott Redford, Larissa Sedikova, Edna J. Stern, Joanita Vroom and Yona Waksman.
