Sveti Pavao shipwreck : a 16th century Venetian merchantman from Mljet, Croatia (with Italian and Croatian abstracts) by Carlo Beltrame( )

10 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between 2007 and 2012 the Department for Underwater Archaeology of the Croatian Conservation Institute from Zagreb and the Department of Humanistic Studies of the Ca' Foscari University of Venice collaborated in the recording, underwater excavation and analysis of the unusually well-preserved wreck of a 16th century Venetian merchantman in the Svetti Pavao shallow off the southern shore of the island of Mljet, Croatia. The shipwreck preserved many personal possessions of the crew as well as a number of bronze artillery pieces and the remains of a cargo of luxury and richly decorated ceramic material from Iznik and other oriental workshops. Although the excavation is not complete, this volume presents the results of the project so far. The methodological and technical aspects of the underwater investigation of the site, mainly by photogrammetry, are described; the historical and archaeological context of navigation in the late Medieval period in the eastern Mediterranean discussed; and the recovered artefacts described and catalogued in detail, together with the remains of the ship and its equipment that, because of depth and of problems of conservation, have been left in situ. The conservation and restoration of the finds are described in an appendix

La città nell'alto Medioevo italiano : archeologia e storia by Gian Pietro Brogiolo( Book )

From one sea to another : trading places in the European and Mediterranean Early Middle ages : proceedings of the International Conference Comacchio, 27th-29th March 2009 by Sauro Gelichi( Book )

14 editions published in 2012 in 3 languages and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent excavations at Comacchio as well as archaeological research in the Venetian lagoon are defining the northern Adriatic region as an especially dynamic area in demographic rather than economic terms during the early Middle Ages. This dynamism is best expressed in the form of new centres of settlement with specific characteristics, principally associated with short- and long-distance trade. This phenomenon possesses a strong resemblance to the emergence of similar places along the North Sea coastline from more or less the same period. This phenomenon has been much debated by historians and archaeologists, who have ascribed the source of these new specialized centres (defined as emporia or wics) as prototypes for future mercantile cities and the rebirth of the medieval economy. The scope of the congress at Comacchio was to evaluate the most recent evidence, in a historical and archaeological context, addressingthe importance of these new Adriatic centres as well as considering comparisons for the first time with the more familiar northern European trading centres.-Cover

Tesori : forme di accumulazione della ricchezza nell'alto Medioevo (secoli V-XI)( Book )

11 editions published in 2004 in Italian and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Come venivano accumulati e conservati determinati beni materiali - preziosi, ma anche di uso comune - tra la tarda antichità e l'alto medioevo? A quale scopo venivano sottratti all'uso e alla circolazione? Quale valore potevano assumere questi "tesori" al di là di quello immediatamente economico? Il termine tesoro è stato prevalentemente utilizzato in campo archeologico, ma la parola latina "thesaurus" compare anche con frequenza nelle fonti scritte, e il fenomeno si presta ad essere studiato da un punto di vista più generale di storia della mentalità e della cultura materiale

Un monastero sul mare : ricerche archeologiche a San Quirico di Populonia (Piombino, LI) = A monastery by the sea : archaeological research at San Quirico di Populonia (Piombino, LI) by Corinna Bagato( )

6 editions published in 2016 in Italian and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The remains of the monastery of San Quirico stand on the slopes of Poggio Tondo, a hill not far from the ancient city of Populonia. They overlook the Tyrrhenian Sea, dotted with the islands of the Tuscan archipelago. Field research at this site, carried out in the first decade of the new millennium by two different teams, from Siena University and Venice's Ca' Foscari University, respectively, was part of ongoing efforts to expand the Baratti-Populonia Archeological Park, and to further explore the features present within it. This volume contains the results of this research work: a scientific publication of the excavation, and a critical analysis of the material found. Processing of the data collected during these investigations, together with a re-reading of written documentation, has made it possible to piece together the complex history of this important monastery, in a totally new narration. In this narration, the history of the monastery, and of the features which existed prior to it, are closely interwoven with the history of the promontory of Populonia and the surrounding area, ultimately producing a new overview which sets out the historical boundaries of this area, between Late Antiquity and the modern era
