AIAS Fellows' Seminar: Hale Güney

How much did they produce? Production pattern of central Anatolian cities during the Roman period

Info about event


Monday 2 March 2020,  at 14:15 - 15:15


The AIAS Auditorium, Building 1632, Room 201



Ancient economic historians have access to data, but not much that is comparable with equivalent data for the modern and early modern world. Do we sit down and lament for the lack of quantitative Roman economic data? By focusing on the problems of self-sufficiency and carrying capacity of the land, this talk seeks to present a model to reveal the production pattern of four ancient cities in central Anatolia during the Roman period.
