heal.abstract
This dissertation was written as part of the MA in Black Sea and Eastern Mediterranean Studies at the International Hellenic University. The study focuses on the study of commercial amphorae of the Byzantine period from the 5th until the 10th century AD. The material that is going to be studied, results either from the land excavation site or from the shipwrecks through the underwater excavations. The study of amphorae will explore the raw materials that were transported, trade relations and transactions, the means of transport (amphorae) as well as the trade routes that connected the regions of the Eastern Mediterranean during this period. Since the area to be studied extends over a vast coastline and includes a plethora of islands, it is certain that in the effort to study and locate the main commercial stations and roads, the research of some ancient ports will be included. More specifically on the trade relations and trade routes that developed between the regions of the Eastern Mediterranean, the study of commercial amphorae is the most reliable, if not the only, method. Ceramics, whether intact vessels or sherds, are the most common findings of excavations and often the only means of dating archaeological finds. Therefore, the systematic study of the pottery and its comparison with similar examples from other areas testifies in addition to the dating, the production workshops, the origin of the vessels and therefore the relations between the areas and the transactions. As for the raw materials that were transported, the specialized analyzes carried out on the amphorae testify to the type of their content, making clear the products to be transported. In this way an attempt is made to understand the products that were imported or exported in each region. In this case the amphorae to be studied contained mainly oil and wine. In conclusion, North Africa and the Eastern Mediterranean are interconnected through trade routes. The Black Sea region can be added to this network. The connecting link of all regions and trade relations during this period is the Aegean and Istanbul, which controls both the moving products and the other transactions. The movement of products, although mainly by sea, is not limited to the coastal areas as the sole recipients of the goods, but they penetrate inland, thus making the commercial networks even more complex. The aim of this dissertation is the study of as many commercial networks as possible as well as the identification of raw materials that were imported and exported in the areas to be studied.
