Summary
In the Roman world technologies were limited to small, scattered social groups. By examining five technologies: lists, tables, weights and measures, artistic perspective, and mapping, this book shows how the Romans broke up a world we might have imagined them to unite. This study combines detailed readings of a wide variety of evidence (inscriptions, small archeological finds, artworks, literary texts) with theoretical consideration of the social, cognitive, and material contexts for their use to present a unique portrait of Roman computing capabilities, limitations, and habits
