Description

Between the XNUMXth and XNUMXth centuries AD, Europe witnessed a series of radical transformations in the political, economic, socio-cultural and environmental spheres. Within the debate between historians and archaeologists on the question of the continuity or discontinuity of political, economic and social structures between the Late Antiquity and the Early Middle Ages, a fundamental role has been played by funerary archeology. This work has considered five cemetery contexts of northern Italy (from the provinces of Bergamo and Modena) that can be placed between the end of the Roman Empire (IV-V century AD) and the early medieval period (up to the VIII century AD), analyzing the archaeological, anthropological, paleopathological information and has also intended, through the study of stable isotopes, to understand the type of diet and identify any alien individuals, both through possible dietary variations, and with the study of strontium isotopes. The possibility of crossing the biochemical analysis data with the anthropological study made it possible to reconstruct some aspects of the living conditions and adaptability of people in the transition period between the Late Antiquity and the Early Middle Ages.
