Additional Information

When discussing the Mediterranean economy many people focus on international shipping; but most economic activity—even today, never mind a millennium ago—is regional, and, above all, highly local.

In this talk, CMRS Distinguished Visiting Scholar Chris Wickham (Emeritus Chichele Professor of Medieval History, University of Oxford; Fellow, All Soul’s College) explores the local through the mixture of evidence–partly documentary, partly archaeological–which one can use to get a sense of how local economies worked, interacted and changed, and what was necessary for them to become more closely linked.
