Africa Under Rome: 

Relationships, Identities and Cultural Trajectories

Contemporary field archaeology extends our knowledge of the ancient world, once confined to cities and the books written in them, deep into the countryside.  David Mattingly's lectures show us how to read the record of material culture so that we can understand the complex and dynamic relationship between the people of the North African Countryside and their Roman overlords.
