The talk will address the earliest trade from around the beginning of the Bronze Age. We will do our best to trace and follow its main lines, engaging with both the historical and theoretical questions that arise treating precious materials, textiles, and so on in addition to dealing with prices, values, import substitution and product substitution as well as circulation. We will discuss grain in particular in order to provide a critical perspective on long term changes. There will be a prolonged period for questions and discussion of the range of issues raised by such a broad topic, so audience input will be both vital and welcomed.
