cover

The current Collection of scientific papers is dedicated to the anniversary of the distinguished Ukrainian archaeologist, scholar and expert in Byzantine history Olena Olexandrivna Parshyna. The book consists of the papers presented at the 13th European Archaeological Association congress, in the session "Ten centuries of Byzantine trade", which was organized in the frames of the congress, and research articles covered a number of principal issues on the history and archaeology of the Byzantine Empire from the 5th to the 15th century AD.

The book comprises articles that cover various aspects of maritime and overland trade and travel throughout the Byzantine Empire and amongst its affiliates. It also considers contacts with "strangers" and locals, goods and spirits and the religious aspects of travel and trade in their archaeological and historical perspectives.

The book is divided into several logical parts: studies of Late Roman and Byzantine amphorae and their contents; studies of glazed pottery and glass acquired from various archaeological sites; archaeological excavations of Byzantine towns and settlements, and theoretical issues concerning divers aspects of Byzantine economy and legislation. The final article provides a brief overview of the Byzantine shipwrecks discovered by underwater archaeologists in the Ukrainian waters of the Black Sea.
