Abstract

Norman Sicily tends to be discussed by historians in terms of regnal years and decades. This chapter broadens the agenda, both chronologically and geographically, aiming to throw light on the people who do not have a written history. An archaeological investigation of Sicily in particular offers an opportunity to study the effects of the Norman regime on the pre-existing population, showing how Muslim and Christian communities lived together, and incidentally to point up the rewards of integrating bioarchaeological and biomolecular evidence into an
historical narrative of the Middle Ages.
