Abstract

The ERC project nEU-Med. Origins of a new economic union (7th-12th centuries) aims to understand the manner and timing of Western Mediterranean economic growth. Starting from a sample area, the Maremma coastal region, this session will offer a first reflection on the 10th century Tuscan economic system with a multidisciplinary approach. The march of Tuscany was a strong institutional framework, which was formed in the Carolingian age and lasted until the end of 11th century. Which were the resources at stake? How and where were they extracted and redistributed? What was the role of coinage in this system? Three different points of view will be considered: written (Paper A), archaeological (Paper B) and numismatic sources (Paper C).
