  1. 1. Roman Archaeology for Historians
  2. 2. http://graeworks.net/roman-occupations/
  3. 3.  Francis J Haverfield  The Romanization of Roman Britain (1905)  Ancient Town Planning (1913)  The Roman Occupation of Britain (1924)
  4. 4. Of course, this particular photo was taken by Gertrude Bell, who is famous for her work on the early Christian and Islamic sites along the Euphrates, and so not at all a good illustration for the point I’m making. However, this is a Roman milestone marker in Arabia. http://www.gerty.ncl.ac.uk/i ndex.php
  5. 5.  Roman archaeology has always been tied to power in the present
  6. 6.  So Roman Archaeology for Historians is not going to be just about the material culture of the Romans, but will also consider  the ways in which we know about them now,  how we have imagined them,  and the role Roman archaeology will play in the future.  Yep: historiography of Roman archaeology.
