Study of the Roman world is incomplete without a good understanding of the archaeological evidence for the development and spread of Roman society. The story of Roman expansion is not told just through history and art history. Knowledge of the great wealth of other archaeological remains that constitute the Roman military and civilian landscape is fundamental for understanding the spread of Roman culture, politics and economics. This course will concentrate on the archaeology of Europe and the Western Roman Empire, with a special emphasis on Roman Britain. Thus, it will complement other historical and material culture courses, both geographically and in its specific use of archaeological method and theory. It will also complement the archaeological courses 'Britain before the Romans' and 'post-Roman Britain'. An understanding of the development of the Roman political and cultural landscape, especially throughout Europe and into Britain, is fundamental to understanding the origins of western culture.
3,000 word essay (50%), short test (25%) and tutorial paper and presentation (25%).
