Welcome to Project MERCURY

We develop resources to encourage the use of computational modelling in Roman economy studies:

How you can help!

This project is a community effort! Everyone in Roman studies benefits from being able to access an up to date and elaborate archive of models, open datasets and bibliography.

Notice something is missing? You can update the bibliography yourself since it’s an open Zotero group: open access Zotero bibliography “Roman-simulations” . Or get in touch with Tom.
