Scope and content "In The Mortuary Archaeology of the Medieval Banat (10th-14th centuries) Silviu Oța highlights the interactions between different ethnic groups as reflected in burial customs and funerary practices. The book will deal with the Banat as a whole (as opposed to the Romanian, Serbian or Hungarian parts of the region) since the modern political borders are not identical with the cultural boundaries in the Middle Ages. On a more general level, the goal of this book is to analyse the social dynamics in the region. The author rejects the idea that any of the 'archaeological cultures' identified in the Banat (e.g. the Bjelo Brdo culture) may be associated with any single ethnic group"--Provided by publisher.
