From Britain to Africa and from Spain to Iran, the Roman Empire seemingly united diverse peoples and cultures. All roads led to Rome, the City - Urbs, a cosmopolitan and overcrowded metropolis. In this course we study written records and material remains from the beginnings of Rome in the eight century BCE to the late Empire in the fourth century of our era. We follow political, social, economic, and cultural changes over time, examining a variety of evidence and voices and keeping abreast of current problematic areas and scholarly debate. The Roman material is supplemented with comparative evidence from non-Roman societies within and bordering the Empire, as we account for the relevance of past experiences to our current issues.

The course deals with archaeological methods, theories and interpretations in discovering, reconstructing, and understanding past societies worldwide. As we address specific thematic units and case studies, we learn how archaeological evidence and interdisciplinary research reveal human responses and adaptations to their environments and climate change. Archaeology generally deals with material remains and is the primary discipline that systematically studies societies and time periods that lack written documents. Historical archaeology combines the methods of archaeology with analysis of written and oral sources. This holistic approach builds our knowledge of the human past, enables critical reappraisal of the interconnection between cultural and environmental change and accounts for the relevance of past experiences to our current issues.
