About us


Tom Brughmans is a Leverhulme Research Fellow on the Oxford Roman Economy Project. Iza Romanowska is Senior Researcher at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center. Shawn Graham is Associate Professor of Digital Humanities at Carleton University. Together we have nearly forty years of experience with simulation and complex systems modeling of the Roman world.

With this project, we wanted to try some analog simulation of Romans instead. We gratefully acknowledge the support of the Ontario/Baden-W├╝rttemberg Faculty Research Exchange where we first conceived of the idea, and the Oxford Roman Economy Project for continued support, and the support of The Leverhulme Foundation, Carleton University and the Barcelona Supercomputing Centre.
