"The City of Rome" examines the features and development of the physical world of the ancient Romans. Beginning with the earliest evidence for material culture in and around the city of Rome, we examine how both the Roman city and the material objects associated with Roman life (including art, architecture, and technology), developed and changed as Roman influence expanded, Roman culture came into contact with neighboring cultures, and Roman rule came to dominate the Mediterranean basin.
