Production and Distribution of Food during the Roman Empire

Albert Diaz-Guilera

We are currently collaborating with historians, archaeologists, and computer scientists to set up an innovative framework to investigate the political and economic mechanisms that characterized the dynamics of the commercial trade system during the Roman Empire. It is a project funded by the European Research Council and our contribution is to introduce network theory as an appropriate description for some trade realtions during the Roman Empire.
