Die Vandalen und das Mittelmeer. Politik, Wirtschaft, Kultur – Neapel, 04/2023

Internationales Kolloquium. Aus dem Ankündigungstext der Veranstalter:  «The study of recycling and reuse in Late Antiquity and Early Middle Ages has been a subject of long-standing enquiry. Throughout the decades, traditional approaches have been reconsidered and recycling and reuse of Roman material are no longer seen as passive responses to lack of resources and a declining economy, but rather characterized by a high degree of organization, with power, skills, knowledge and legal concerns also playing a role.
