Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0715636790, Paperback)This timely, concise volume enlarges on the debate that still continues twenty-five years after Richard Hodges' ground-breaking Dark Age Economics was first published. Special attention is given to the archaeological, anthropological and historical models about gift and commodity exchange, pertinent to western Europe during the 7th to 10th centuries, and how these debates shed new light on the evolution of towns. One theme of the book examines the role of the elite in economic practice. Twenty-five years ago archaeologists and historians challenged this; today, paradoxically, as government plays a reduced role in managing our economies, medieval archaeologists and historians concur that the economics of the Early Middle Ages were highly regulated.
