Chapter Summary

Under the term 'western Illyricum' this book understands the space of the Roman provinces of Dalmatia and Pannonia, present-day eastern Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, western Serbia, Montenegro, Albania and the southern parts of Hungary, with their adjacent regions, in particular in relation to Istria. The focus of this book purposely narrows from late antique Illyricum to post-Roman and early medieval Dalmatia, focusing on the early medieval Croat identity in the northern part of coastal Dalmatia. This narrowing of focus corresponds with the political, economic, and identity-fragmentation that occurred in the post-Roman period, but also with the quantity of currently available material and written evidence, which is quite scarce for the Dalmatian hinterland. The book uses theoretical approaches which have been widely used in recent times in studies of ancient and medieval history, as well as archaeology, for the significant problem of identity- transformation in post-Roman and early medieval Dalmatia.

Keywords: medieval Dalmatia; post-Roman period
