SOUTH-EASTERN EUROPE

New Book Series on the History and Archaeology of South-Eastern Europe


HISTORY AND ARCHAEOLOGY OF SOUTH-EASTERN EUROPE. FROM THE ROMAN PERIOD TO THE FRENCH REVOLUTION 

We are delighted to announce the launch of a new book series in our Trivent Medieval imprint: History and Archaeology of South-Eastern Europe (from the Roman period to the French Revolution).

The series aims to broaden our knowledge of the history and archaeology of the south-eastern corner of Europe from the Roman period up until the end of the Ancien Régime (from the first century BC to the end of the eighteenth century). South-Eastern Europe is understood as the area of present-day Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia, Kosovo, Albania, North Macedonia, Greece, Bulgaria, and southern areas of Romania, while remaining territories of Romania, Hungary, and Slovakia, as well as parts of Turkey and Italy, will be considered as the closest comparisons. This area in its long history under advisement was at the same time unified and divided: it was mostly inhabited by Slavic peoples but also by autochthonous and immigrating Balkan populations (Vlachs/Romanians, Albanians, Greeks, Roma, Jews, etc.), it was divided on the basis of belonging to Eastern and Western Christianity as well as Latin or Greek/Slavic culture, with constant changes and overlaps of borders between political, cultural, and confessional units from empires to national states. From the economic point of view, however, the area was highly influenced by its bridging character between the West and Levant. The series will focus on different aspects of social, political, economic, cultural, religious, and confessional circumstances and developments of the area as a whole and of the entities it includes. 

The series is edited by Dr. Suzana Miljan and Dr. Ljubica Perinić, both of the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts, Zagreb.
