Event date:

This project will investigate the transition from Late Antiquity to the Early Middle Ages, covering Western Eurasia and North Africa over four centuries, from an innovative economical perspective. It will look closely and carefully into the changes in economy while using the most widely available - and underutilized - proxy, metal coinage, surviving in millions of published specimens.

This project is being organized by John Haldon, Helmut Reimitz, and Lee Mordechai.
