A Stable System? Risk and Uncertainty in the in the Development of the Villa System

My project focuses on how the villa-system in the late Roman Republic responded to, or failed to respond to, uncertainty created by political and military events in the late Roman Republic. It considers the role of risk-taking in this process, more specifically whether calculated risk-taking was a driving force behind the expansion of the villa-system in this period.
