Title

And beyond agriculture and shipping? A brief look at the productive activities of cities during the Greek Revolution

Date

1 October 2021

Abstract

The revolution that turned into a long war disturbed the economy of the revolutionary areas, especially those that were the scene of military battles. The economy of the liberated regions was a war economy, largely subservient to the needs to maintain of the necessary military forces. It was marked at the same time by infrastructural damage caused by the war. Manufacturing as a productive activity of the economy was barely visible but did exist, and concerned the processing facilities for agricultural products located in the countryside as well as industry and handicrafts of the city, as reflected in the workshops of the urban centres of the time. The presentation focuses on the presence of the latter in cities of the Peloponnese for which relevant evidence has been identified that provides information on the density and operating conditions of the workshops, the profile of the specialization of the owners as well as ownership and rental status.
