City-Hinterland Relations on the Move? The Impact of Socio-Political Change on Local Economies from the Perspective of Survey Archaeology

Panel 11.3

Archaeology and Economy in the Ancient World – Proceedings of the 19th International Congress of Classical Archaeology, Cologne/Bonn 2018

While the impact of major societal transformations on town and country has always been a central topic in field survey archaeology, recent methodological and theoretical advances are offering novel perspectives on this subject. Increasingly intensive field walking techniques, artefact collection strategies and both typological and technological artefact studies have transformed our understanding of rural settlements and ceramic consumption, especially of local (coarse) wares. These developments enable us to study changes in local systems of production and exchange with much more spatial and chronological detail, and in turn contribute to a revision of the impact that large-scale transformations had on local settlement systems and economies.
The papers in this volume explore how survey archaeology can refine our understanding of the links between socio-political change and local economic landscapes. Focusing on different micro-regions in Italy and Greece, the papers present new work that combines archaeological field surveys and ceramic research. Using both tested and novel methodologies, they explore socio-economic change (in consumer practices, systems of agricultural and artisanal production, exchange networks) in the context of the development of the Greek polis, of Roman expansion in different parts of Italy, and of the transformation of Late Antique (local) landscapes in Italy and Greece.

Tymon de Haas is assistant professor of Classical and Mediterranean archaeology at Leiden University. His main expertise is the archaeology of Mediterranean landscapes and the main methodology to investigate such landscapes, archaeological field survey. As co-director of the Pontine Region Project, he leads multidisciplinary field research into Roman field systems.

Dean Peeters is in the final stages before submitting his Ph.D. research at Cologne University in the framework of DFG Graduiertenkolleg 1878 'Archeology of Pre-Modern Economies'. He is trained in Mediterranean archaeology (Leiden University) and a team member in the Boeotia Project in Central Greece. Dean is currently working in Dutch prospective archaeology (geomorphological corings and landscape reconstructions).

Luigi Pinchetti recently completed a PhD in Christian Archaeology at the University of Bonn in the framework of the DFG Graduiertenkolleg 1878 ‘Archaeology of Pre-Modern Economies’. His main research interest is the transformations of the agrarian economy in the transition from the ancient to the medieval period, with a particular focus on the relation between religious institutions and economic evolution.
