Late Antique and Early Medieval Inscriptions

Welcome! (The site is now in the process of being updated after a hiatus).

The purpose of this website is to provide a full collection of links to on-line databases, books, Phds, and articles on late antique and early medieval inscriptions, covering the period from A.D. 300 to 900. So far there are over 520 such links.

As can be seen from the tags above, the links are organized by region. Please note that the regional bibliographies provided here are limited purely to what is freely available on-line.

The 'New publications' page is intended as a resource to enable those interested to keep track of new publications. By contrast, it is not limited to what is available on-line. Currently it covers the years 2008-2013, and includes c. 240 publications. Scholars are warmly invited to email me with news of their recent relevant publications for inclusion in this list. Similarly, anyone with comments, criticisms, additions or corrections, along with anyone who thinks copyright is being infringed by a link should email me at mark3handley 'at' hotmail 'dot' co 'dot' uk (my email is shown this way to try and avoid generating spam).

A new feature has been added to the site - "Notes on Late Antique and Early Medieval Inscriptions". This will be a page for me to informally-publish short articles. The first two notes, including a revised version of the first note, are now available.

For a full bibliography of my own publications to date (including Dying on Foreign Shores. Travel and Mobility in the Late-Antique West, Journal of Roman Archaeology Supplementary Series Vol. 86 (Portsmouth RI, 2011)), with available links, click on the 'My publications' tab.
