This series provides a forum for high-quality scholarly work - original monographs, article collections, editions of primary sources, translations - on the cultures, economies and societies of a vast area of Eastern Europe, from the fall of the Hunnic empire of Attila to the fall of Constantinople. It advances the revision of earlier historiography, either on the entire area or certain regions.
A wide range of disciplines are included: all historical subjects, every branch of archaeology, language, art history and architecture, sculpture and numismatics, with focuses on regional variations and cultural identities, the interaction between internal and external factors, and the diversity of the local responses to external stimuli. The series is also interested in how the medieval past has been viewed, used, and (re)constructed in east-central and eastern Europe up until the twentieth century.
All books published in the series undergo double-blind peer review.
