  Late Antique Beaded Earrings - The Metropolitan Museum of Art - Met Museum Store
Despite this, Christian iconography did not fully dominate the arts until the late fifth or early sixth century; jewelry from this period continued to reflect the Roman taste for colorful stones and classical iconography.
The Museum's Late Antique Beaded Earrings are adapted from a necklace that was part of a group of jewelry found on the Hill of St. Louis in Carthage.
The original, vibrantly jeweled necklace is formed of emerald crystals, sapphires, and pearls, and probably belonged to a prominent family.

It brings to bear new data in the form of Thomas's analysis of the original plaster and paint overlays of these sculptures and her recognition of recarving and forgeries, and it radically reinterprets the entire corpus.

 Late Antiquity - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
While the usage "Late Antiquity" suggests that the social and cultural priorities of Classical Antiquity endured throughout Europe into the Middle Ages, the usage "Early Middle Ages" emphasizes a break with the classical past, and the term "Migrations Period" emphasizes the disruptions in the same period of time.
Late Antiquity marks the decline of Roman state religion, circumscribed in degrees by edicts inspired by Christian advisers to 4th century emperors, and a period of dynamic religious experimentation and spirituality with many syncretic sects, some formed centuries earlier, such as Gnosticism or Neoplatonism and the Chaldaean oracles, some novel, such as hermeticism.
In the field of literature, Late Antiquity is known for the declining use of classical Greek and Latin, and the rise of literary cultures in Syriac, Armenian, Arabic, Coptic, vulgar Latin and, in some cases, Romance dialects.

 Heavenly Realms and Earthly Realities in Late Antique Religions - Cambridge University Press   (Site not responding. Last check: )
By contrast, it is striking how often late antique authors use images of heaven to articulate their abiding commitment to this-worldly life and worship.
To map the late antique discourse about heaven, we must thus base our search for cross-cultural commonalities in careful analyses of the specific religious traditions, literary genres, and social worlds in which they are expressed.
In “The Bridge and the Ladder: Narrow Passages in Late Antique Visions,” Fritz Graf challenges the pervasive tendency to harmonize the diverse images used to describe the passage from earth to heaven.

 Late Antiquity
Department of History at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign participates in an interdisciplinary field in the study of Late Antiquity, encompassing the Late Roman, Early Medieval, and Early Byzantine periods (third through seventh centuries AD).
In the west, Late Antiquity saw the gradual withering of classical society, government, and religion, and the for­mation of a strictly western European, Christian society that eventu­ally would culminate in the modern‑day western European nations.

 The House in Late Antique Syria
The residential architecture of late antique (third- to sixth-century) Syria, albeit in ruins, is far better preserved than anywhere else in the ancient world, a phenomenon noted by the first modern travelers in the region.

The late antique Syrian house by virtue of its form, block or tower, is fundamentally different from contemporary residential buildings elsewhere.

But in antiquity it was but one of many similar rural settlements which fill the S Hauran in a broad band running E-W from Deir el-Kahf to Deraa between the border of Provincia Arabia north of Bostra and Azraq on the south.
Because strong communities which grew through their own spontaneous efforts are a distinct feature of late antiquity, it is worth comparing them to older, larger cities.
However, as cities lost control over their territories in late antiquity, such villages acquired greater autonomy, which was eventually encoded in the Byzantine legal system (Haldon 1990: 132-41).

 Kehoe: The Economic Consequences of Late Antique Tax Policy
In this paper, I would like to continue this investigation of the role of law in the rural Roman economy by focusing on the economic implications of late antique fiscal legislation, which involved, beginning in the fourth century CE, the binding of certain categories of farmers to the land they cultivated.
At the same time, the contradiction between the binding of coloni to their land and the realities of the agrarian economy drove much of the bargaining beyond "the shadow of the law," in that tenure arrangements between landowners and tenants who left their land were not enforceable in Roman courts of law.
So even if the late antique fiscal system imposed substantial costs on the economy, the state may have had good reasons to maintain it if it provided a way to collect of revenues vital to the empire's stability.

 Late Antique Walls: Aesthetics and Defence
Unlike Constantinople, which kept her fourth-century size, most mediaeval enceintes are smaller than their antique counterparts, and built from spolia released by the shrinkage.
An old idea is that such walls were built quickly as a response to immediate threat, so that the constructors, lacking the time to use newly cut stone (or perhaps lacking the necessary resources) have simply taken what came most conveniently to hand, and cleared away earlier monuments, possibly already in a state of collapse.
One antique practice which, curiously, the Middle Ages did not try to imitate (except perhaps at Arles) was to relate the famous dead to the august antiquity of the city by associating standing funerary monuments with the walls and approach-roads (although on one occasion at Antioch tombs were dismantled for fort-building
