The Mediterranean Connectivity

The Mediterranean Connectivity Initiative, formerly known as the Ostia Connectivity Project, “combines GIS and Social Network Analysis to reconstruct potential social groupings and their participation in the urban fabric of Rome’s main port city of Ostia.” Lindsey Mazurek co-directs this project with other experts on archaeology and social history. Mazurek is a specialist in ancient history with a focus on the eastern Mediterranean under the Roman Empire. She is also interested in questions of globalization and social networks in the Mediterranean.
