Welcome to H-Demog, a member of H-Net Humanities & Social Sciences OnLine, headquartered in the History Department at Michigan State University. H-Demog is an international scholarly network on demographic history.
H-Demog is currently looking for new editors to take over the network and take an active role in developing new online materials and resources for the field. We also looking for contributors, bloggers, discussants, resources gatherers, etc. If you are interested in helping build this site, please contact Patrick Cox, H-Net's Vice-President for Networks, at email@example.com.
Fellow H-Demog members,
Those of you interested in the demographics of the Mediterranean during the Medieval may wish to start a discussion.
Recently the writing system of a Medieval manuscript was revealed to be proto-Romance: i.e. the ancestor to the modern Romance languages. In addition, it is written with a proto-Italic alphabet. It is the only known document of this kind and therefore has considerable linguistic and historic importance.
