Lombards and Greeks, Arabs and Normans: Southern Italy in the Early Middle Ages, 600-1100

This project examines southern Italy and Sicily as a whole from c. 600-1100. It is the first time that such a study looks at all the various regions in a comprehensive and concise fashion. This project highlights common themes and trends in spite of the political fragmentation and ethnic diversity characteristic of the area that have led scholars to create highly localized histories.
