Mediterranean, cities, daily life and archaeology are the keywords in this second series featuring two African cities: Thebes and Leptis Magna, an Iberian city: Carthago Nova, the pivotal between East and West: Byzantium/Constantinople and Pergamon, located in present-day Turkey.

In his studies of the Mediterranean, the French historian and pioneer of so-called New History, Fernand Braudel, attached great importance to the role of geography in social and economic behaviour. Cities in general, and Mediterranean cities in particular, reflect how gradual changes in public and private behavioural patterns, of such interest to New History, become more evident. This explains why Mediterranean cities are of such interest to archaeologists specialised in the study of the evolution of lifestyles.
