Description

A "catastrophic vision" has long been dominant in studies on the socio-economic impact of the Black Death epidemic of 1347-48 and, more generally, of the events of the first half of the fourteenth century. The weight of such a strong model is still relevant in the historical debate, although a large part of scholars have long been involved in a total re-evaluation of this period. The changes that occurred in the passage between the thirteenth and the second half of the fourteenth century seem to have profoundly influenced the "material" sphere of life of the medieval population. It therefore seemed natural to question archaeological sources - and ceramics in particular - on specific issues related to consumption, living standards and social mobility. The possibility of statistical comparison constitutes the guiding principle of the book which, through a series of specially developed methods of analysis, attempts to explore the possibilities offered by a contextual-comparative approach also on an international scale. In Tuscany, in addition to the systematic work on the ceramics of the Montecchio Vesponi Castle, the published contexts of Via dei Castellani (Florence), the ex-Laboratori Gentili (Pisa) and the castles of Montarrenti and Rocca were placed under the magnifying glass. Ricciarda. The precious collaboration with the Museum of London Archeology has then allowed to include five London urban sites among the case studies, in addition to the villages of Westbury and Great Linford and the port city of Southampton. The results obtained have brought out a series of specific trends which appear to reveal not only a different pattern of production, circulation and consumption of ceramics but also of wider developments taking place in the late Middle Ages.
