Travel and Transport through Time:
I. Data and Methodologies to Model the movement of goods in Roman Times
The study and analysis of the economy of historical periods is a highly complex field of study. This workshop, focused in Roman times, begins an outstanding series of workshops about Historical Travel and Transportation that will be celebrated annually.
State economic policies, methods and costs of production, distribution of products, and demography, are factors that must be taken into account in order to study the economies of the past. Among these fields, a very important element that must be analysed is the transports. Since the last century, we have tried to use classical written sources, administrative documents, such as the Edict of Diocletian, fragments in papyri, historical data or ethnographic sources, among other types of data, to try to create new economic estimates on the economic costs and times of the transport. The seminar presented this year aims to compile the latest scientific studies on data and methodologies that are applied to the study of Roman transport.
The workshop will be divided into two blocks: one dedicated to historical data and one dedicated to methodology.
Full programme to be announced soon.
