Organ of the Department of Historical, Archaeological and Anthropological Sciences of Antiquity, this journal collects the results of aggregated research in thematic areas in the perspective of an integrated study of ancient societies in all their aspects - environmental, technological, economic, social, political, artistic , ideological - considered as interacting elements in systems with specific transformation dynamics. The studies that converge in it are conducted on different documentary materials - archaeological, philological-epigraphic, ecological-naturalistic, etc. - through equally different methodologies and analytical techniques, in view of the convergence of disciplines in a wider reciprocal interaction. The chronological and geographical location goes from prehistory to late antiquity and the Middle Ages, even if the prevailing interests are concentrated in the ages ranging from the near-eastern and European neolithization to the Greek and Roman world. The eleventh volume, relating to the years 2001-2003, includes essays divided into four themes that broaden the scientific interests to a broad geographical horizon, covering a chronological period from the prehistoric age to the Middle Ages.
