    Dear all,
    Apologies for this blatant self-advertising, but I thought the following would be of particular interest to the Digital Classicist community.
    Today, a pair of discussion papers was published in Antiquity on the topic of the role of formal computational approaches in Roman studies. It was sparked by our paper on computational modelling, which was discussed by Van Oyen, and we finally wrote a reply to this discussion. The discussion concerns in particular the use of computational simulation models, the use of large digitised datasets, and the theoretical challenges this poses. We very much hope that this will lead to more discussions about the role of formal approaches in Roman studies, and more critical formal studies.
    The original paper sparking the discussion:?https://www.academia.edu/24250074/Brughmans_T._and_Poblome_J._2016_._Roman_bazaar_or_market_economy_Explaining_tableware_distributions_through_computational_modelling._Antiquity_350_393_408._DOI_10.15184_aqy.2016.35
