Exploring Libarna’s Urban Landscape: Report from the 2016 and 2017 seasons
This presentation given at the Archaeological Institute of America’s annual meeting discussed the data collected conducted throughout the first two seasons of the Libarna Urban Landscapes Project. Of note is the unique case of local agricultural practices which have aided in the efficacy of our investigations and warrant further inquiry.
Our report from our 2016 survey season was published in FOLDR, part of the FastiOnline archaeological journal published by the International Association for Classical Archaeology in collaboration with the Italian Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Activities (MiBAC). You can view this report here.
Colonialism in Context
This archaeological project aims to understand the development of Libarna in its geographical, socio-political, and cultural context through strategic excavation of the domestic and economic areas to illuminate human activities. This will allow clarification of the socio-economic history of Roman northern Italy and of cultural integration overtime with the growing Roman Empire.
