This peer-reviewed* 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. 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 may include translations from Hungarian, Polish, Romanian, Bulgarian, or Russian works. As such, the series will advance the revision of old works either on the entire area or on certain sub-regions.
