Urban Change on the Balearics in Late Antiquity
ByMiguel Ángel Cau
Pages 30

It is not my intention to deal in detail with either the juridical status of the Balearic Islands or the processes of municipalisation here, since these aspects have been suciently discussed elsewhere (nb Arribas 1983c; Zucca 1998; García Riaza and Sánchez León 2000; García Riaza 2003; Sánchez León and García Riaza 2004; various works by Sánchez León 1999-2003); but comment is needed on the settings and quality of these sites in the full imperial period

before consideration is given to the fates and archaeologies of these in the late antique and early medieval epochs.
