Project conference 2017

On 26-27 January 2017 we held our final project conference. The conference focused on four major topics: computer modelling approaches to subsistence economy, demography, transport and mobility, and socio-economic networks in the Roman period. These subjects were treated in papers presented by project members and other scholars working on similar issues from Europe and even the USA. The conference attracted some 65 participants who participated enthusiastically in the discussions. Subjects that were discussed in particular were the role of economic and demographic theory in archaeological research and modelling, how to connect models and data at different spatial and temporal scale, and best practices for analysing the sensitivity of computer models and validating their results using archaeological data.
