Discussion about Mediterranean anthropology.

Dear H-SAE members,

Those of you interested in anthropology 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.
