Studies in Historical Geography
and Cultural Heritage

The Idea

New thoughts and ideas are transforming Historical Geography as are Digital Humanities and a wide range of new methodologies (like GIS – Geographic Information System and HGIS – Historical Geographic Information System). Therefore, new methods and theories are increasingly and at a fast pace being applied to the Historical Geography of Byzantium and adjacent areas (i.e. South-East Europe and Eastern Europe).

This international peer-reviewed publication series aims to present original research in the fields of Historical Geography, Byzantine Studies, Medieval Studies, Balkan Studies, Archaeology, Geography, Cartography, GIS / HGIS and Cultural Heritage. We invite manuscripts – monographs as well as conference proceedings – from a broad range of all these scholarly fields, with a focus on the regions of the former Byzantine Empire, especially South-East Europe and Eastern Europe, and we particularly welcome interdisciplinary approaches.

The Scientific Advisory Board appointed every five years as well as the publication procedures ensure the series maintains a high standard of scholarship.

Short History

Research on the Historical Geography of the Byzantine Empire has always been integral to Byzantine Studies. With the foundation of the project Tabula Imperii Byzantini (TIB) of the Austrian Academy of Sciences by Professor Dr Herbert Hunger (1914-2000) in 1966 and the subsequent developments shaped by Professor Dr Johannes Koder, Vienna has evolved into a renowned centre in this field of study.
