Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'This collection of papers is an important and valuable attempt to set them [discussions] off in the right direction, containing more intereting material and anaylsis than I can cover here. I recommend it warmly.' - Classical Review
Booknews
Accepting that agriculture was the primary economic activity during classical times, archaeologists and classicists, most from Britain, examine the growing archaeological evidence for considerably more manufacturing and long-distance trade that has been previously thought or is generally imagined. They further the work of Moses Finley to cover modelling the ancient economy, extraction, construction, and textile production in 13 essays. Annotation c.
