This course is designed to provide advanced undergraduates with a broad overview of the economy of the Roman Empire. It is organized around a series of weekly topics that will be explored through readings selected to provide students with exposure to the theory, evidence, and methods currently being employed by historians and archaeologists to investigate that particular aspect of the Roman economy. The weekly topic will be developed in a lecture presented during the Tuesday class meeting. The Thursday class meeting will be devoted to discussion of two assigned articles or book chapters.
