Abstract

Archaeology has contributed important new data to the history of early medieval towns in Eastern Europe. The author draws a distinction between 'incipient towns' and 'towns endowed with local rights', establishing that urban life in Slavonic lands began as early as the eighth century. Important excavations at Mikulcice, Kiev and Novgorod are quoted.
