About the book:

In this book Stephen Dyson provides a new synthesis, describing current research on the Roman countryside within a topological rather than a geographical or historical framework. He first examines the Roman villa, looking at changing interpretations of the villa and the ways they have been shaped both by new information and evolving interpretative models, relating the survey-settlement evidence to larger questions of landscape use and landscape transformation during the Roman period.

Focussing on areas where some of the most innovative rural research has been conducted - Italy, North Africa, Spain, and France  he discusses what happened in rural areas in the period of transition between the end of Antiquity and the emergence of medieval society. He shows that the period of transition was much longer than previously thought, and that there was tremendous variation not only between one part of the Empire and another, but also between micro-regions within a single province.
