  • Towns and Trade in the Age of Charlemagne (Debates in Archaeology)

    This is an illustrated study of towns and trade in the age of Charlemagne, in the Debates in Archaeology series, which analyses urban continuity and discontinuity in Europe during the Dark Ages. It examines the important continuing discussion of the rebirth of urbanism in Carolingian Europe.

    This exciting new collection of documents from across Europe gives a fresh perspective and sharp taste of everyday life in a medieval town.

Deliberately wide-ranging, these sources acknowledge the contributions of other disciplines—such as archaeology, architecture, demography, law, and environmental studies—to our understanding of urban life i...

  • Out of the Ashes: The Rise of Towns and Trade in the Early Medieval West

    In this comparative study, Williams-McClanahan reviews our thinking about the rise, or rebirth, of towns during those years when the western world was in limbo following the demise of the Roman Empire. She argues that far from being a dark, stagnant age, Britain and Western Europe were busy building sound foundations for economic growth, town development and the revival of trade. Williams-McClanahan guides the reader through an era abundant with new developments, such as agricultural technology, re-opening of long-distance trade routes, special...

  • Early Medieval Towns in Britain: c 700 to 1140 (Shire Archaeology)

  • Dark Age Economics: Origins of Towns and Trade, A.D.600-1000 (New Approaches in Archaeology)

Recently a wealth of new archaeological evidence has emerged to enable historians to assess the growth of international trade and the evolution of towns in this crucial period. This book analyses models of economic evelopment in the light of this new evidence to evaluate not only the changing character of the first post-Roman urban centers but also the organization of the countryside which supported them. Boat remain...

  • Medieval Cities: Their Origins and the Revival of Trade

    Henri Pirenne is best known for his provocative argument--known as the "Pirenne thesis" and familiar to all students of medieval Europe--that it was not the invasion of the Germanic tribes that destroyed the civilization of antiquity, but rather the closing of Mediterranean trade by Arab conquest in the seventh century. The consequent interruption of long distance commerce accelerated the decline of the ancient cities of Europe. Pirenne first formulated his thesis in articles and then expanded on them in Medieval Cities. In the book Pirenne tra...

    The King’s Towns is the first book to study the relationship between England’s central government and four royally constituted towns of the provinces from the fourteenth through sixteenth centuries.
