Abstract

?In the end, demography without numbers is waffle?(Coleman and Schofield 1986, 4)?... most population figures recorded in Greek and Roman literature have been scrutinized so often that any interpretation that has not yet met with common approval will probably remain forever controversial.?(Scheidel 1996, 165)?Historical knowledge of past human population sizes is a quilt of tiny pieces of fact (archaeological remains, monuments, documents, observations of present human and nonhuman populations) patched together with large portions of conjectures and assumptions.?(Cohen 1995, 28)
