The Oxford Roman Economy Project is organising a conference to take place in Oxford on 10 September 2007. The focus of this conference is going to be on the demography of the Empire, with special reference to issues concerning urbanisation and population trends in specific provinces. It is intended that there will be a combination of approaches, some historical, based on information gleaned from documents, and some archaeological, based mainly on the results of field surveys. The aim will be to examine what those data suggest about settlement patterns and sizes within different provinces, and to explore the extent to which a comparative view of the better documented areas of the Empire is possible.
The conference is an open event, free of charge, although numbers are
restricted to about 80. If you would like to attend, please register as soon
