Prof Keay said: “We will explore the relationship between these 31 ports and look at how they integrated to form a crucial part of vast trading networks across the Roman Empire.
“They formed one of the world’s most important trading systems, operating at a time when the Mediterran-ean was a unified region.
“By studying these networks we aim to gather a wealth of knowledge about how they operated and why – also helping to set in context how trade was conducted in later historical periods and, indeed, today.
