Bringing together literary, epigraphic, and legal sources, with a wealth of archaeological data collected in recent years, Marzano shows that these marine resources were an important feature of the Roman economy and, in scope and market-oriented production, paralleled phenomena taking place in the Roman agricultural economy on land. The book also examines the importance of technological innovations, the organization of labour, and the use of the existing legal framework in defence of economic interests against competitors for the same natural resource.
Annalisa Marzano is a Reader in Ancient History at the University of Reading. She focuses in particular on the social and economic history of the Roman world and is author of Roman Villas in Central Italy: A Social and Economic History (2007).
