This chapter presents a detailed analysis of the archaeology of manufacturing and retail in the Roman city of Aquincum. While most of this site was excavated in the late nineteenth century, recent fieldwork has reshaped our view of the commercial history of this town. As the civilian settlement—situated some 3 kilometres north of the legionary camp— developed from a vicus into a municipium and, later, into a colonia, its commercial landscape became more varied, and spread out over a larger area. Yet the original main street of the vicus always kept a strongly commercial character, illustrating how existing situations affected subsequent developments.

Keywords:   Roman craftsmen, Roman traders, Roman economy, Roman Europe, Lime, Danube, Aquincum, commercial landscape
