Commentary: States and technological mobility - A view from the west

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter argues that political context was a determining factor in technological mobility. Weaving together the contributions to this volume and a case study of Bronze Age Italy, I trace the role of the state in facilitating the transfer of technologies, and I propose several archaeologically identifiable models for the movement of specialists.
