The cuneiform record is unrivalled in its temporal depth, spatial differentiation, and the sheer number of texts found. Holding a vast amount of quantitative and statistical information on economic structures, it offers unique insights on the production, manipulation, and consumption of a range of resources. This talk reviews a doctoral study on the size of Bronze Age political economies bridging digital humanities data analysis, GIS, six archaeological surveys, and some 2,000 tonnes of stuff.
