A pioneering study in historical ecology, REGIONAL DYNAMICS applies a multi-scalar approach to the study of southern Burgundy, France from the Bronze Age through the High Middle Ages, with complementary ethnographic and linguistic studies from contemporary Burgundy. Using an integrated approach based on archaeology, geology, history, ethnology, and linguistics, the authors provide a powerful case study that is of interest to anyone concerned with European history and archaeology, landscapes, and political economy.
