Il caso studio delle necropoli longobarde in area danubiana


This book, based on the author's doctoral thesis, focuses on the funerary customs and the society of the Langobards in the last phase of the migration period. Several theories about identity and ethnicity in the Middle Ages, developed in the field of history, have been used to interpret the archaeological records; from this perspective the funerary evidence holds a privileged position, because necropolises provide the richest and the best preserved evidence for the greater part of the age of migrations. Analysis of the grave goods of 16 necropolises of Austria and Hungary that display the material culture of the Langobard people has yielded interesting results relating to the funerary culture and the society that created these arrangements of grave goods. This analysis has permitted the identification of various data that grant an understanding of the construction and the development of the cultural and social identity of the Langobards during the last phase of their migration.
