The Carolingian Economy

Synopsis

The economy of the Carolingian empire (753-877), extended from the Pyrenees and the northern shores of the Mediterranean to the North Sea, and from the Atlantic coast to the Elbe and Saale rivers. Aspects of land and people, agrarian production and technique, craft and industry, and regional and international commerce are analyzed, and the Carolingian economy is reassessed in a European context.
