Flash Talk | From Huts to Palaces: Understanding the Architecture of Rome's First Houses

Amelia Eichengreen, IPCAA
Friday, February 4, 2022
12:00-12:30 PM
The old cliche says "Rome wasn't built in a day." However, Rome transformed from a city of mud huts to one of stone palaces within a fifty-year period, or one may even say, "a day." In this talk, IPCAA graduate student Amelia Eichengreen discusses Rome's changing architectural landscape from huts to palaces as well as the current state of the field, what the huts looked like, how they were used, and how they can help us to better understand Rome's earliest inhabitants.
