Sinopsis: In the first century AD, a flourising trade route via the Red Sea connected Imperial Rome with the Indian subcontinent. Joining literary evidence from antiquity with recent archaeological finds from both the Mediterranean and India, 13 eminent scholars reassess when and how the Rome-India sea made developed. "Rome and India: The Ancient Sea Trade" presents new evidence about the dating, provenance, and distribution of classical imports to India - such as terra sigillata, amphoras, glass, and bronzes. The contributors suggest that sea trading between the Mediterranean and Indian began at least as early as the first century BC, reached its peak in the first century AD and continued later, but in a different pattern. The detailed analysis of pottery suggest that the trade network in India and Sri Lanka was more widespread than suspected.
