Thinking About the 11th-Century Mediterranean Economy
CMRS Distinguished Visiting Scholar Lecture
Please note the location of this lecture has changed from Royce Hall Room 306. The new location is Moore Hall Room 100.
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.
Co-sponsored by the Department of History.
