Example text

A high proportion of current late antique archaeology is concerned with cataloguing the signs of the break or decline marking the ‘end of antiquity’ which can be observed on many sites, even if not in all. But that very enterprise rests on pre-existing notions of periodization, and those notions of periodization are inexorably built in to the very scope and coverage of a large number of archaeological publications. It seems to me that the issues now emerging for late antique historians and archaeologists alike, and which I have just outlined, demand a different kind of chronological and subject division, one which can trace change over a longer period of time, and in so doing allow for a deeper appreciation of its complexity.

For this see for example Bowersock (1996).
