Welcome to Project MERCURY

Project MERCURY aims to develop resources and case studies to encourage the use of computational modelling in Roman economy studies.  It will provide practical tutorials, an open source model library implementing common Roman economics concepts that can be reused, and organise practical workshops to teach computational modelling to scholars in Roman studies at different stages of their careers. A range of case studies will be performed to illustrate how the method can make important contributions to Roman economy studies, exploring phenomena such as Roman amphora reuse, Roman economic integration and ceramic product preference.

All of this will become available on this website over the coming months and years!
