How were space and movement in Roman cities affected by economic life? What can the study of Roman urban landscapes tell us about the nature of the Roman economy? These are the central questions addressed in this volume.
"This book offers a variety of interesting and valuable contributions to our knowledge of the Roman economy. It is especially noteworthy for its use of GIS and social network modelling in order to analyze economic activities and networks, showing the value of such approaches for our knowledge of the ancient world." - Bryn Mawr Classical Review
"This volume makes a significant contribution to the much-needed integration of archaeological evidence within historical debates. This can only be achieved by collaboration between archaeologists and historians, for which the volume sets a laudable example." - The Classical Review
