Chapter Summary

The date of the Avar migration to the Middle Danube region is a turning point in the history of the Carpathian Basin. The Avars conquered and then united under their rule the inhabitants of the region, Germanic and Romance populations, Slavs, and inhabitants of the border provinces of the early Byzantine Empire. The polity established in the Carpathian Basin by the Avar horsemen in the late sixth century survived for two and a half centuries and became one of the most important political and military factors in early medieval Europe. This chapter is a survey of the most recent advances in the archaeology of the Avar age. It attempts to show just how traditions may be identified by means of an in-depth study of dress and spiritual culture.

Keywords: Avar migration; Carpathian Basin; coexistence; conflict; early medieval Europe; female dress; Germanic populations; male dress; Romance populations; spiritual culture
