The Iberian peninsula has a particular archaeology within Europe. In the Middle Ages Christians, Muslims and Jews coexisted in towns and in the countryside. But the country was divided between the Christian kingdoms in the north and Muslim al-Andalus in the south. Both areas changed in many ways as the Christians gradually expanded their territory and were finally victorious in 1492. This book focuses on differences and similarities as well as the interchanges between the cultures which produced much of the heritage of present-day Spain.
This book is the first modern survey in English of medieval archaeology in Spain, and it reveals the extraordinary development of Spanish archaeological work after the creation of regional governments (Comunidades Autónomas) in the 1980s.
