Long-distance East-West Contacts in Late Antiquity

 

In a long-running research project, partly funded as an ESRC fellowship, Dr Anthea Harris examined the 'international relations' of the Byzantine Empire, focussing on contacts with the West in the period circa AD 400-circa 650.  This involved both archaeological and textual studies, including detailed analysis of a wide range of portable artefacts, burial data and architectural evidence.  The study demonstrated an unexpected range, character and intensity in East-West relations during this period.

 

The project was published in 2003 as Byzantium, Britain and the West: the archaeology of cultural identity, AD 400-650, Tempus Publishing, Stroud.
