    Mediterranean Byzantine Ports and Harbours in the Complex Interplay between Environment and Society. Spatial, Socio-Economic and Cultural Considerations Based on Archaeological Evidence from Greece, Cyprus and Asia MinorIn this paper, certain features of archaeological sites of Byzantine ports and harbours in the Eastern Mediterranean are discussed; these features reveal aspects of the sites’ history within the complex interplay between environment and society. The main aim is to dene how specic physical and social features of these sites determined – and emerged from – their role in land and maritime networks. Similarly, three multidisciplinary factors will be considered, not just for their interrelatedness in the development of ports and harbours but also as fundamental shapers of their history: geomorphology, geography, and human geography. Two theoretical issues form the backdrop to this study: 1. the sites’ performance as Byzantine »gateway communities« of social contacts and cross-cultural exchanges and 2. the physical, economic, political and cultural conditions which add up to the analytical categories of medieval Mediterranean port and harbour

    L’habitat en Grèce pendant les IVe–IXe siècles2013In: Antiquité tardive, ISSN 1250-7334, E-ISSN 2295-9718, Antiquité tardive, ISSN 1250-7334, Vol. 21, p. 125-133Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    L’habitat rural en Grèce du ive au ixe siècle présente des aspects déjà assez bien connus, comme les villae et les villages, mais également d’autres formes qui ne sont pas encore clairement identifiés, leurs traits caractéristiques n’étant pas assez bien décrits ni précisément définis. Cet article aborde tous les types d’agglomérations dont les habitants participent à des activités économiques de nature rurale. À côté des implantations classiques, quelques nouvelles formes sont ainsi identifiées. On prend aussi en compte des changements de structure et de rôle de ces agglomérations, observables dans l’ensemble de l’habitat rural de la Méditerranée orientale, tout en y distinguant deux sous-périodes : du ive siècle à la première moitié du vie environ, et de la deuxième moitié du vie siècle jusqu’au ixe.

    One island, three capitals: Insularity and the successive relocations of the capital of Cyprus from late antiquity to the middle ages.2015In: Medieval Cyprus - a Place of Cultural Encounter.: Conference in Münster, 6-8 December 2012 . / [ed] Sabine Rogge - Michael Grünbart, Münster, New York: Waxmann Verlag, 2015, p. 357-387Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In the late antique and medieval Eastern Mediterranean Sea, water is most clearly a link rather than a boundary. Therein the acquisition of wealth - by war or sea-trade - is the strongest incentive for maritime circulation and communication. Contact and interchange among the islands in the area provide them with their concurrent double function as both closed and open systems. I will here discuss the successive relocations of the capital of the island of Cyprus from Late Antiquity to the Middle Ages as an example of settlement transformation in island systems of the Eastern Mediterranean. My main purpose in relation to the particular island of Cyprus is to describe different aspects of its inhabitants’ flexibility to ‘adjust’ their focus of interest and land-use to constant changes of power, trade networks and cultural interactions - usually provoked by central administration. These adjustments will be considered in relation to concurrent developments in two other examples of island systems within the Byzantine Empire, one in the Eastern Mediterranean (Andros in the Aegean Sea) and one in the Western Mediterranean (Sicily in the Tyrrhenian Sea).

    In relation to some facts regarding settlement transformation in Cyprus from the fourth to the twelfth century, I will here attempt to answer two main questions:

    1. What were the particular qualities of islands within settlement networks during Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages?
    2. What does the location - and relocation - of the islands’ capitals represent within the context of the overall transformation of their settlement during Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages?

    "Rural Towns" and "In-between" or "Third" Spaces.: Settlement Patterns in Byzantine Epirus (7th–11th centuries) from an Interdisciplinary approach2009In: Archeologia Medievale, ISSN 0390-0592, E-ISSN 2039-280X, Vol. 36, p. 43-54Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract: This paper constitutes the second part of an effort to re-evaluate the available analytical categories for settlements from an interdisciplinary post-processual approach. The first part was published as “Urban or Rural? Theoretical remarks on Settlement patterns in Byzantine Epirus (7th-11th centuries)” in the Byzantinische Zeitschrift 103/1 (2010) 171-193. A preliminary version of both papers was presented during the Conference ‘Town and countryside in the Mediterranean’ at the University of Athens in May 2007.

    This second part puts on the table the underlying assumptions in research that interpretations of historical settlement should take as a given a clear dichotomy between distinct “urban” and “rural” spaces and the bipolar “urban-rural” hermeneutical schemes, based on recent archaeological and geographic research.

    Space in Texts and Space as Text: A new approach to Byzantine spatial notions2016In: Scandinavian Journal of Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies, ISSN 2002-0007, Vol. 2Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper attempts to introduce some ways in which experience and ideas gained in the humanities and the social sciences open up new opportunities for combined research on Byzantine spatialities. In specific, the four decades of profound scrutiny and inventive consideration on modern and historical spaces, within the countermodern theoretical framework of the so-called Spatial Turn, provide a promising framework for a new area of research on Byzantine spaces. This opportunity is explained in two ways. Firstly, respective theoretical developments within the Spatial studies are discussed with reference to examples from the Medieval and Byzantine studies. Secondly, the new research project “Byzantine Literary ‘Lived Spaces’ through the Study of Hagiographical Texts”, working in the same direction at the Department of Linguistics and Philology at Uppsala University, is presented and discussed. The project’s subject, scope, and methodology are briefly explained while an indicative example of conducted research (on the 11th-century Vita of St Lazarus from Mt Galesion) is used to demonstrate the potential of combined reasearch on Byzantine spatialities.

    Three buckles, two crosses, a fibula, and a coin-weight: Metalwork and industrial features from the 7th - 10th century Settlements in Byzantine Epirus Vetus on the basis of their contemporary and later evidence.2015In: ΔΑΣΚΑΛΑ: Απόδοση Τιμής στην Καθηγήτρια Μαίρη Παναγιωτίδη-Κεσίσογλου / [ed] P. Petrides – V. Phoskolou, Athens: University of Athens - Saripolos Foundation , 2015, 1, p. 65-90Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper deals with the distribution, qualities and particular fea-tures of seven metal artefacts from western Greece (modern southern  Epirus and Aetoloacarnania), dating from the late 6th or the early 7th through to the 10th century. This material is discussed in the context of contemporary and later evidence so as to identify traces of industrial features of Byzantine settlement. The scarcity and the rather conventional nature of known archaeological evidence do not speak for a ourishing industry of metalwork in the area dur-ing the 7th-10th centuries. However, textual evidence dating from the same period, as well as later archaeological evidence, seems to support the development of a metalwork tradition in northern and western Greece during the Middle Byzantine period.

    Urban or Rural? Theoretical Remarks on the Settlement Patterns in Byzantine Epirus (7th–11th centuries)2010In: Byzantinische Zeitschrift, ISSN 0007-7704, E-ISSN 1868-9027, Vol. 103, no 1, p. 171-193Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper refers to habitation in the Byzantine Empire from the 7th to the 11th centuries and attempts a reappraisal of the patterns used to describe, evaluate and interpret the distribution of archaeological remains. Based on the study of a region in western Greek mainland, several contradictions between the historical and the archaeological evidence on settlement are being discussed; those reveal the prevalence of dispersed rather than nuclear patterns of habitation in the area. These patterns are further discussed within the context of medieval settlement around the Mediterranean. The physical form of Middle Byzantine Episcopal sees is sought for while the term ‘κάστρον’ is examined against the “archaeological imaginary” of 6th–11th c. Byzantine fortified settlements.It is concluded that the contextualization of archaeological and historical evidence for Middle Byzantine settlements in Southern Epiros demonstrates instead a rather flexible organization of habitation; episcopal sees do not seem to have corresponded to any clear distinct type of settlement. It is therefore suggested that during periods of rapid social change expressed through a transformation of habitation, specific forms or sizes of settlements cannot be correlated to specific functions or other political or socioeconomic activities. There should rather be more of “hybrid” settlement formations of changing nature and mixed qualities. Given the dynamic development pattern of Byzantine habitats, there is room for such “open” analytical categories in the archaeology of settlements, in order to facilitate descriptions of find distributions which do not conform to the available theoretical patterns. These new categories could further lead to an emergence of new interpretation schemes bringing out the spatial differentiation and uniqueness which seems to have been very much the case in the evolution of Byzantine provincial settlement patterns
