Description

Archaeological evidence enables us to explore communication and symbolic actions within parts of medieval society. Archaeology informs about objects within specific, meaningful social contexts: house sacrifices, pilgrim badges, stove tiles, aquamaniles, toys and equipment for games. Thanks to the contextual information provided by excavation, we can study the diffusion of some aspects of communication and symbolism in medieval society.
