Abstract

Archaeology is an important tool to study and characterize the community. The lagoons of the northern Adriatic (the one in Venice and of Comacchio) were particularly interesting spaces in which to study these phenomena in the Middle Ages. The papers of this section they want to highlight these processes, in particular by analyzing the changes in the environment in relation to the construction of specific communities, through three examples: Comacchio and territories on the edge of the lagoon of Venice (to the north, with the case of Equilo and the south with that of the monastery of St Ilario and Benedetto of Mira).
