Water and Society in Early Medieval Italy, AD 400-1000
Cambridge University Press, 22.08.2002 - 208 Seiten
This book offers an original discussion of an element--- water---and its relationship with people. In particular it shows how early medieval Italian societies coped with the problems of having too much or too little water, and analyses their use of it. Such treatment illuminates both the workings of post-classical societies and of the environments in which these societies lived. Domestic usage, bathing, irrigation and drainage, fishing, and milling all receive full coverage.
