Fonthill Recovered: A Cultural History

Edited by Caroline Dakers

Discussion about Mediterranean Medieval material culture.

Dear H-Material-Culture members,

Those of you interested in Medieval material culture in the Mediterranean may wish to read a couple of new papers. 

Recently, the writing system of a Medieval manuscript was revealed to be proto-Romance: i.e., the ancestor to Spanish and the other 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.
