About us

Economic History at Reading is an interdisciplinary grouping of academics who combine the skills and methodological approaches of archaeologists, classicists, economists, financiers, and historians combining more conventional literary approaches to the economic past to further our understanding of economic history and development. Our chronological coverage is broad; running from the classical world, through the medieval and early modern periods, right up to the present day (and a little beyond!). Between us, we have expertise in all the key sectors of the economy: agriculture, manufacturing, finance, retailing and consumption, transport, defence. Together we create an enthusiastic and innovative intellectual environment and a centre of excellence in research and postgraduate studies.
