The Medieval Pottery of Rome: A Different Source for Economic History 

The focus of my research is how to use medieval pottery as a source for the economic history of Rome from the ninth to the fifteenth century. My research will be just the starting point of a wider discussion, concerning the general use of archaeological materials as historical and economical sources.

Sailing along the Thirteenth- and Fourteenth-century Cilician Coast

Abstract: My research aims to complement current understanding of trade activities in medieval Armenian Cilicia, a region with dynamic Crusader and merchant activities. My paper will indicate the ways in which Medieval Mediterranean economic historians can benefit from depictions of Cilicia in contemporary maps and manuals, and their implications for Western merchant activities along the Cilician coast.
