Summary: The Roman Empire in its early centuries was a world of cities, dominated by landowning elites and conforming to a common pattern in their institutions, buildings and culture. In The City in Late Antiquity archaeologists and historians bring together their two disciplines to discuss what became of these cities, after the crisis of the third century and the later collapse of the Empire.

While the classical city has often been portrayed as in decline everywhe morere by the fourth century, this book shows this picture to be too simplistice. In some regions, such as Africa, old customs were still vigorous, while elsewhere, for example in Britain, urban life disappeared and the cities survived only as fortresses, if at all. This book pays particular attention to the impact of the Christianization of the Empire on the cities. less
