MERCURY extension: transport-cost (version 1.0.0)

This is extended version of the MERCRUY model (Brughmans 2015) incorporates a ‘transport-cost’ variable, and is otherwise unchanged. This extended model is described in this publication: Brughmans, T., 2019. Evaluating the potential of computational modelling for informing debates on Roman economic integration, in: Verboven, K., Poblome, J. (Eds.), Structural Determinants in the Roman World.

WHAT IS IT?

EXTENSION:
This extended version of the model incorporates a ‘transport-cost’ variable, and is otherwise unchanged. This extended model is described in this publication:
Brughmans, T., 2019. Evaluating the potential of computational modelling for informing debates on Roman economic integration, in: Verboven, K., Poblome, J. (Eds.), Structural Determinants in the Roman World.

OLD VERSION:
This agent-based model aims to represent and explore two descriptive models of the functioning of the Roman trade system that explain the observed strong differences in the wideness of distributions of Roman tableware.

A detailed technical description of the model is published as:
Brughmans, T., & Poblome, J. (in review). MERCURY: an agent-based model of tableware trade in the Roman East. Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Simulation.

The archaeological research context and interpretation of experiments’ results are published as:
Brughmans, T., & Poblome, J. (in press). Roman bazaar or market economy? Explaining tableware distributions in the Roman East through computational modelling. Antiquity.
