Show Summary Details


The concluding chapter starts with a consideration of the relationship between Islamic archaeology and the study of Islamic history, noting some of the reasons why archaeological data have not been more fully utilized by textual historians. The second part summarizes the main findings of the book, including the study of the transition from late antiquity to early Islam, the development of the rural environment, the diversity of religious practice (Muslim and non-Muslim), technology, trade, and material culture. The chapter concludes by arguing that Islamic archaeologists need to engage in fuller dialogue with other scholars of past cultures in the Islamic world.
