A summary of the archaeological narrative showing the transition of the Roman socio-economic landscape centred on the Villa into the Medieval village landscape. Well written and concise, this book offers a model that is clear and comprehensive in what is otherwise a complicated debate. This is an academic book for the specially interested, of you want a book on Tuscany because you are going there on holiday - then buy something else.

I'm surprised there are no other reviews on this little book. OK, it's a specialized topic, with quite a bit of historiography and the archeological equivalent. Nevertheless, I think this is a highly valuable book for anyone interested in the history of Europe between the end of the Roman empire and the eleventh century. The book is short, readable, packed with examples, and covers both history and archeology. Definitely worth checking out. One question I came way with was which came first, monasteries on hilltops or villages on hilltops, or did they both build there at the same time to get away from someone else.
