Collection: Limina Limites Archaeologies, histories, islands and borders in the Mediterranean (365 1556)

Islands and borders are two of the many possible keys through which we can study the post-classical Mediterranean. From the time that the Mediterranean ceases to be a great Roman ‘lake’, that same sea becomes an often uncrossable border that both separates and protects many worlds that developed with different forms and rhythms and along its extensive coasts. At the same time, however, the Mediterranean continues to be an element of unity: it provides a shared identity to communities that were culturally and geographically distant; and it can still be crossed to go to, and beyond, other frontiers.

Islands and borders, forming connecting lines and lines of separation, offering unified identities yet socio-cultural diversities, from this point of view can become spaces for reflection by disciplines seeking to understand the past but which aim to make much more widely available the tools with which to interpret some of the basic needs of the contemporary world, solving, for example, in terms of ‘Public Archaeology’, ideas, results and outcomes of both pure and applied research.

The Limina/Limites series seeks to invite editors of proceedings of conferences and workshops, authors of individual monographs and collective studies which, regardless of their discipline, are targeted at the integration of diverse data sources and systems oriented at a global reconstruction, and geared to long-term trends and to Mediterranean-wide spatial dimensions.

Series Editors: Miguel Angel Cau (Catalan Institution for Research and Advanced Studies), Christine Delaplace (Université de Caen Normandie), Demetrios Michaelides (University of Cyprus), Philippe Pergola (Aix-Marseille University), Helen Saradi (University of Peloponnese, Trípoli), Guido Vannini (University of Florence), and Enrico Zanini (University of Siena)
