About this product
- DescriptionThis new volume enlarges on the debate that still continues almost thirty years after Richard Hodges' ground-breaking Dark Age Ecomics was first published. Richard Hodges focuses on the archaeological, anthropological and historical models of gift and commodity exchange, pertinent to Europe during the seventh to ninth centuries, and shows how these debates shed new light on the evolution of the Early Medieval political ecomies. Special attention is also given to new evidence for managing agrarian ecomies and how this shaped the evolution of towns. Ranging across western Europe, a new thesis is advanced about the shift from the consumption ecomies of antiquity to the emphasis upon production in the Middle Ages.
- Author BiographyRichard Hodges is Professor and Director of the Institute of World Archaeology, University of East Anglia. He is the editor of this series and author of many books including Dark Age Economics, The Anglo-Saxon Achievement, Towns and Trade in the Age of Charlemagne, Goodbye to the Vikings and (with Riccardo Francovich) Villa to Village, all published by Duckworth.
