Project: Beneath the surface of Roman republican cities

01/04/15 – 30/09/17

The aim of this project is to contribute to the understanding of cities in this formative period through detailed study of two key sites: Interamna Lirenas and Falerii Novi, thereby addressing the following questions about their development: 1. the scale, the nature and extent of their primary planned grids (and its relationship to the town walls at Falerii Novi) 2. the nature and extent of settlement surrounding the grid-planned areas 3. the organization of domestic space, 4. the character, role and nature of the public monuments 5. the role of local, Italic, and Greek influences on these elements of their planning
