Abstract

This session is the first part of the series on trade in the Mediterranean and focuses on the early and central Middle Ages. It explores aspects of trade, particularly involving Venice, the Adriatic Sea, and the Byzantine area. This session will highlight through an analysis of amphorae findings and of written commercial documents the developing commercial role of Venice between the early and central Middle Ages, both in the Adriatic and in the Byzantine areas.
