Drawing on archaeological fieldwork in Western Greece, this book offers a fresh model for interpreting the transformation of medieval settlement (600-1200 AD). Rereading Byzantine texts from a postmodern theoretical background, it introduces a new perception of the historicity of space.

About the Author:

Myrto Veikou, PhD (2007) in Byzantine Studies, University of Athens, has been teaching at the Universities of Crete, Cyprus and currently the Hellenic Open University. She has published on Byzantine archaeology and settlement in Archeologia Medievale (2009) and the Byzantinische Zeitschrift (2010).

Review:

..".Coming nearly forty years later, her book builds on this inventory and advances our understanding in two important ways. Certainly the spread of development and tourism across modern Greece has enlarged the documentary record, which the author systematically gathers along with her own observations based on personal reconnaissance, local conversations, and random finds. But of greater significance than marshaling data is her critical assessment of sources in light of a generation of post-processual landscape study, with its conceptual shift from examining localized places to reconstructing their interactions amid a changing physical environment. The immediate achievement of Byzantine Epirus is to situate this half-millennium of regional history within a longer, more dynamic narrative of geographic and social evolution that continues down to the present; its larger contribution may be to remind us to view the margins of political mainstreams on their own terms rather than through the lens of external control. Theoretically justified, clearly organized, and closely documented, this fresh reconsideration of a remote and beautiful mountainous land will be of lasting value."
Marcus Rautman, University of Missouri, in The Medieval Review 14.02.12

Book Description Brill, Netherlands, 2012. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Much of the past twenty years of scholarship on late-antique and medieval landscapes and settlement has introduced theoretical patterns reflecting meta-narratives of evolution and transition. This book draws on 5 years of archaeological and topographical fieldwork in order to attempt a rereading of Byzantine texts in accordance with recent perceptions of the historicity of space. The result is a fresh interpretation of settlement in Western Greece (Southern Epirus and Aetoloacarnania) from 600 to 1200 AD, springing from a postmodern theoretical background. While representing real progress in the treatment of the Middle Byzantine regions, the book makes an ecological contribution to historical and social studies through a new evaluation of the transformation of medieval settlement as a result of interaction between physical/social space and human agency.
