We construct a geography based measure of connectedness along the shores of the sea. We relate connectedness to economic activity, which we measure using the presence of archaeological sites. We find an association between better connected locations and archaeological sites during the Iron Age, at a time when sailors began to cross open water routinely on a big scale. We corroborate these findings at world level.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:issued>2020-01-23</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Bakker, Jan David</dc:creator> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2020-02-04T15:52:02Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Maurer, Stephan</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
