Flash Talk | An Example of Mobility: The Epigraphic Record of Migration from Hadrumetum to Lambaesis

James Prosser, IPCAA
Friday, September 9, 2022
12:00-12:30 PM
The work of Jean-Marie Lassère in Roman North Africa has provided a foundation for understanding where and when people were moving across the region in the 1st–3rd centuries CE using several hundred epigraphic examples. In this talk, I closely examine one case of four inscriptions from Lambaesis where people claimed to be from Hadrumetum and integrate them into an understanding of the road system of the area to demonstrate not just where people were moving, but how they were moving across the landscape. This one case study sets the foundation for a wider study of the epigraphic record and the road system across Roman North Africa that fits into more modern trends of mobility and migration studies.
