Description - Trade, Traders and the Ancient City by Helen Parkins

Trade, exchange and commerce touched the lives of everyone in antiquity, especially those who lived in urban areas. This collection of papers addresses the nature of that trade, and the effects it had in cities throughout the ancient world, from the Bronze Age Near East to late Roman northern Italy, and challenges the received notion of the unsophisticated nature of early trade. Trade, Traders and the Ancient City is a comprehensive and well-researched book, which employs the most current archaeological, papyrological, epigraphic and literary evidence to offer an innovative and stimulating analysis of the importance and influence of trade in the ancient world.
