Migration and Identity in Eurasia: From Ancient Times to the Middle Ages (Pontica et Mediterranea X)
Category: Archaeology
Language: English


   The volume brings to the forefront two topical concepts in European historiography and beyond. In terms of the Antiquity and Early Middle Ages, emphasis lay on the impact of mobility and migration in the Greek and Roman world, migration narratives, experiences and structures, migration and integration, networks, connectivity, and cultural interactions, politics of honour and civic identity in the Hellenistic and Roman world, as well as on the archaeological study of migration concepts, methods, results, scholarly traditions and political ideology especially in the case of those territories under political debate among various modern countries.
