The LXVI Week of Study on the Early Middle Ages, organized by CISAM, will be held from 5 to 11 April 2018 at Albornoz Palace Hotel. This year’s theme will be Migration in the Early Middle Ages.

The lessons will focus in particular on three themes related to migration: Ethno-anthropological Aspects, Migratory Processes and Transplantations and Sedimentations as a Result of Migrations that characterized the period under study.

Spoleto’s Fondazione Centro Italiano Centro di Studi sull’Alto Medioevo is a noble cultural institution that prints books on the Middle Ages and it is considered a solid point of reference in worldwide medieval research providing, through the Week of Study, an opportunity for academics and enthusiasts to meet and debate at the highest level.
