9780199679294: Quantifying the Roman Economy: Methods and Problems (Oxford Studies on the Roman Economy)

This collection of essays is the first volume in a new series, Oxford Studies on the Roman Economy. Edited by the series editors, it focuses on the economic performance of the Roman empire, analysing the extent to which Roman political domination of the Mediterranean and north-west Europe created the conditions for the integration of agriculture, production, trade, and commerce across the regions of the empire. Using the evidence of both documents and archaeology, the contributors suggest how we can derive a quantified account of economic growth and contraction in the period of the empire's greatest extent and prosperity.

About the Author:


Alan Bowman is Camden Professor Emeritus of Ancient History and Principal of Brasenose College, Oxford. His research interests focus on papyrology, the Vindolanda Writing tablets, and the social and economic history of Ptolemaic and Roman Egypt and the Roman Empire.

Andrew Wilson is Professor of the Archaeology of the Roman Empire and Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford, Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries, and Chairman of the Society for Libyan Studies. He has directed excavations in Italy, Tunisia, and Libya, and is the author of numerous articles on ancient water supply, ancient technology, economy, and trade.

Review:

well-edited and nicely-produced A. J. Parker, International Journal of Nautical Archaeology The character of the volume is both exploratory and searching ... commendable and extremely useful undertaking systematically to compile quantifiable evidence. Peter Fibiger Bang, Journal of Roman Studies this volume does truely offer a reasonably varied, balanced and up-to-date overview of the methods and problems in quantifying the Roman economy, thus effectively contributing to a central debate in Roman studies. Being the first of a series, it certainly places a heavy burden of high expectations on forthcoming volumes. Alessandro Launaro, University of Cambridge
