This study presents a new regional history of the middle Tiber valley as a lens through which to view the emergence and transformation of the city of Rome from 1000 BC to AD 1000. Setting the ancient city within the context of its immediate territory, the authors reveal the diverse and enduring links between the metropolis and its hinterland.

Reviews

'To conclude, this monograph, like its predecessor, must be welcomed. Any detailed analysis of old data is certain to enrich our historical perspective.'
'Tracking through time the rise and fall of settlements, the transformations in economies, and the different choices for supply sources, the authors provide a detailed analysis of demography, economy, social organization, and agricultural production. Without doubt the volume represents a fundamental breakthrough for all of those interested in researching the history of Rome, as well as the developments of settlements and economies in the classical Mediterranean.'
