Historians and archaeologists contribute to an ongoing research project into the role of minor centers or nucleated non-urban sites in the settlement system and economy of Roman Italy. They cover the economic, social, and geographic context; arable production and society; rural crafts; and commercialization. Among the topics are the benefits of market integration: five centuries of prosperity in Roman Italy, the diversification and intensification of Italian agriculture: the complementary roles of the small and wealthy farmer, crafts and trade in minor settlements in north and central Italy: reflections on an ongoing research project, from surface find to consumption trend: a ceramic perspective on the economic history of the Pontine Region in central Italy during the Roman period, and wood and charcoal for Rome: towards an understanding of ancient regional fuel economics. The 18 papers are from a November 2013 conference in Rome. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
