The role of archaeology has expanded over the past 30 years, and research now frequently overlaps with the work of ancient historians and classicists. This book demonstrates how archaeological methods have been used to study the era of the Roman Republic, and the influences of non-Roman cultures on its formation. A collection of original essays by both emerging and established archaeologists with a wide range of nationalities and areas of interest, this book reveals how differing approaches and methodologies contribute to an understanding of the Republic across the Mediterranean basin. Of interest both to archaeologists themselves, and to students of ancient history, art history and classics, it offers a diverse approach to a fascinating field.
