Research Topic: Roman Urban Manufacturing and Trade in Asia Minor: A Comparative Spatial Analysis Evaluating Models of ‘Industrial Quarters’ and ‘Neighborhood Stores’
Dr. Murphy holds a PhD in Archaeology and the Ancient World from Brown University (2014) and an MA in Eastern Mediterranean Archaeology from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium (2007). Her research interests concern the study of workshops and ancient crafts production, economic practice, technology, and labor. Her fieldwork at the site of Sagalassos (SW Turkey) has investigated crafts production during the Roman and Late Antique periods of the city through the excavation of workshop buildings, furnaces, and production infrastructure, as well as through the analysis of associated material culture (tools, finished products, raw materials, and production waste). This research is serving to reconstruct daily work practices and the organization of artisanal labor in the city. Her project at ANAMED, “Roman Urban Manufacturing and Trade in Asia Minor: A Comparative Spatial Analysis Evaluating Models of ‘Industrial Quarters’ and ‘Neighborhood Stores’,” investigates the development of urban industry in Asia Minor from the Imperial to Late Antique periods (1st c. BC – 6th c. AD) in order to assess local decision-making in the placement and scale of shops and workshops, as well as patterns in the scale, character, and status of manufacturing and commercial activities across Asia Minor.
