The research group »Mediterranean Economies« is combining archaeological case studies with economic theory. The development of the forces of production constitutes a decisive factor in the history of human societies and thus also determines contacts between societies to a large extend. Therefore, research into the modes of production, property as well as exchange relationships between different pre- and early-state societies around the Mediterranean in the 2nd and early 1st millennia BCE form the central subject of the different research programs.
