Project description

This project aims to disentangle the complex relationship between Roman colonialism, elite investment in wine production and commerce, and the urban and rural landscape changes which these developments brought about. The research is confined to the territories of the Roman colonies on the central Adriatic coast and to the Republican phases of the Romanization of this part of Italy (3rd-1st centuries BC).
