Project description

This interdisciplinary project aims at the comparative analysis of family relationships in Lazio, Etruria and Campania at the time of the Roman Republic (ca. 509 - 31 B.C.). What did these relations look like and how did they evolve? To what extent were they influenced by the Roman integration of Italy? This project will shed light on the social history and connectedness of these regions.
