Description

The volume presents a powerful encyclopedic synthesis of that vast world, between the mountains of central Norway and the Rhine and Danube rivers, between the Russian forests and the Dutch swamps, uniquely defined Barbaricum but made up of macro-regions with very different cultures.

A world that is read over a long period and above all from an unprecedented perspective: not from that of the Roman Empire (and then the Carolingian one), but as a set of autonomous societies, which also looked to the Empire. The settlement structures and the economy, the social structure and rituality are investigated, in particular following the forms of power.

Almost a millennium of the history of a large part of Europe is recomposed through the material source: a decidedly little known history in our country and which lacked a synthesis.
