Publisher Description:
English Summary: The Vandal period in North Africa has aroused the interest of historians since long as an intermediate period in late antique North Africa, spanning over much of the fifth and the early sixth centuries until the Vandal kingdom was conquered by the Byzantine Empire. Most studies have concentrated on the historic sources, through which a nuanced picture of the Vandal era was gained in recent years. This book assumes an archaeological perspective as an important counterweight and addition to the historic image. Concentrating on Carthage and two larger regions in modern Tunisia, the archaeological evidence is studied with a specific interest on the behaviour of local leading classes. Within the many signs of material continuity, the way the Vandal kings understood and executed their rule over Africa has produced some evidence that also points at the decisive changes that came with the time. German Description: "Capital continuous" beschaftigt sich mit der vandalischen Epoche in Nordafrika im 5. und fruhen 6. Jahrhundert aus archaologischer Sicht. Rekonstruiert wird im ersten Teil des Buches, wie sich Karthago wahrend der vandalischen Zeit entwickelte und auf welche Art und Weise es die Hauptstadt des Konigreichs wurde. Im zweiten Teil der Studie werden zwei grossere Regionen im zentralen Nordafrika im Hinblick auf ihre Beziehungen zur Hauptstadt und auf die Veranderungen, die sich durch die politischen und gesellschaftlichen Entwicklungen in den Stadten und ihren fuhrenden Gesellschaftsschichten vollzogen, betrachtet.
