About the Author

S.C. Humphreys read Greats at Oxford and her first research was on ancient merchant shipping and trade. This led to interest in economic anthropology and a joint appointment at University College London in the History and Anthropology departments, where she founded a Combined Studies BA programme in Ancient History and Social Anthropology. In 1985 she moved to the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, as full Professor in history, with honorary appointments in anthropology and Greek; here she was much involved in the Interdepartmental PhD in Anthropology and History. She retired in 2000 and continues to conduct research.
