Chapter Summary

This index section presents list of terms that occur in this book Technology in transition A.D. 300?650. The book investigates the technology of the Mediterranean world between A.D. 300 and 650. It appears at a time when most scholarship has moved away from the view, held by L. White Jnr. and M. Finley, that the technology and economy of the Roman world was characterised by stagnation and pre-industrial primitivism, hampered by amongst other things, elite distaste for commerce, and the use of slave-labour rather than a motivated free workforce.

Keywords: Mediterranean world; Roman world
