Roman Provincial Archaeology: The West


Investigates ancient visual and material culture for information about relations between Rome's western provinces (especially Spain) and Rome, from initial, brutal conquest through incorporation. Within an archaeological context we address complex issues, such as colonialism and indigenous change and continuity, as evidence in Rome's conquest of new territories in the Mediterranean. Examines monuments and new archaeological data available from Roman Spain, as well as selected samples from other Roman provinces of the western Mediterranean (Britain, Gaul, and others).
