Migration and Mobility within the Early Roman Empire starts off from the belief that state-organised, compelled and voluntary mobility and migration have been intertwined and may be studied jointly. The papers assembled within the booklet faucet into the remarkably huge reservoir of archaeological and textual assets bearing on quite a few varieties of circulation in the course of the Roman Principate. crucial subject matters lined are rural-urban migration, labour mobility, relationships among pressured and voluntary mobility, state-organised events of army devices, and familial and feminine mobility.

In other words, the seasonality of deaths is a characteristic feature of the pre-transitional populations, urban and rural, in northern countries as well as in Mediterranean countries. It is certainly possible that the peak of mortality in Rome was due to the endemic or even hyper-endemic character of malaria. But this cannot be proven by death seasonality alone.
