Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book The Mortuary Archaeology of the Medieval Banat (10th-14th Centuries) contains the table of contents, acknowledgements, a list of illustrations and map sites and abbreviations. The book discusses that as part of the archaeological research conducted on the territory of Banat, the study of cemeteries dated to the 10th-14th centuries is particularly significant. The rise of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy through the Ausgleich of 1867 offered a unique opportunity for Hungarian nationalism, now in a position to bring some of its ideals to life. One of the main expressions of the cultural nationalism promoted in Hungary during the second half of the 19th century was an explosion of archaeological studies dedicated to at that time recently excavated cemeteries dated to the 10th-11th centuries, some of which had been found in the lowlands of the Banat.

Keywords: Ausgleich; Austro-Hungarian monarchy; Banat; Hungarian nationalism; Mortuary Archaeology
