FAST Lecture: "Exchange and Urbanization in Early Rome: Perspectives from S. Omobono"

Thursday, April 11, 2013

Kelsey Museum of Archaeology, 434 South State, Ann Arbor

Since the 1930s, excavations at the site of S. Omobono have revealed an uninterrupted archaeological sequence stretching back at least to the Early Iron Age (EIA). Ongoing work by the University of Michigan and the Università della Calabria has corrected many misconceptions about the character of the earliest phases of the site and promises to clarify the role of exchange in the sociopolitical development of EIA Rome.

FAST lectures are organized by students in the Interdepartmental Program in Classical Art and Archaeology.
