SUMMARY

The Slavic invasions in the late 6th century are commonly viewed as the cause of countryside devastation and collapse of urban life in Boeotia. The Early Byzantine period (7th-9th c.) is often designated as the Dark Ages, while the revival is generally regarded as beginning in the mid-9th century. Recent historical and archaeological research in Boeotia refined both the chronological divisions and the perceptions of the period in question. The reorganisation of the Εmpire into military provinces, the themes, from the end of the 7th century, with Boeotia and Attica comprising the nucleus of the new theme of Hellas, could be viewed as an early and successful attempt to tackle disintegration phenomena in the Εmpire under the impact of Slavs or other factors; compared to northern Greece and the Peloponnese, Boeotia remained a safer and less deserted by the invasions area.
