Al-Mina: A Port of Antioch from Late Antiquity to the End of the Ottomans

Front Cover
Peeters Publishers & Booksellers, 2005 - Antioch (Turkey) - 203 pages
The purpose of this book is to examine issues of acculturation and differentiation at the site of al-Mina, one of the ports of Antioch, through its material culture. Although it examines approximately 1500 years of history (A.D. 350-1900) at al-Mina, the book concentrates on periods of cultural transition. Five major transitions are examined in detail : Late Roman/Early Byzantine, Early Byzantine/Early Islamic, Early Islamic/Middle Byzantine, Middle Byzantine/Frankish, and the Frankish/Late Islamic.
