Summary:
Looks at the rural organization and practices in the Roman province of Achaia as well as its role in the general economy. It includes studies on recently excavated farmhouses and also the rural economy. Also listed are farmhouses excavated in the past or identified by survey work. This book is the first result of a long standing project undertaken by the Institute of Greek and Roman Antiquity of the National Hellenic Research Foundation and focuses on the financial and social issues occurring in Greece during the Roman period. This project will be completed with two other conferences, the next in May 2014, "Social dynamics in Roman Greece: the role of social mobility", co-organized with the French School, and then the last, one year later, "Handicraft production, workshops and trade", in collaboration with the Archaeological Service.
