ANCH 035. History and Archaeology of Republican Rome


This course is an introduction to the history and archaeology of Rome from its early beginnings in the 9th century BCE to the establishment of the Roman Empire in the 1st century BCE. We begin with the pre-Roman inhabitants of central Italy who most influenced early Rome, continue with the foundation of the city and its growth as the leader of peninsular Italy and Mediterranean world, and end with the social turmoil of the late Republic and the establishment of the principate of Augustus. The course combines the study of Italy's rich archaeological record with a close reading of ancient texts including Plautus, Polybius, Plutarch, Cicero and Livy.
