The Swedish Institute in Rome is a research institute, subordinate to the Swedish Ministry of Education (Utbildningsdepartementet). It is the base for excavations and other scientific research in Italy and pursues academic instruction in archaeology and art sciences as well as arranging conferences with themes of interest to the institute. The Institute has at its disposal a building in central Rome with a relatively well-supplied library, archaeological laboratory and c. twenty rooms and smaller apartments for the use of visiting researchers and holders of scholarships.
The board of directors and the chancellery have their seat in Stockholm, the chancellery being also responsible for the Swedish Institute in Athens and the Swedish Research Institute in Istanbul. The latest statute was stipulated in 1993. The San Michele foundation on Capri is also subordinate to the institute’s board of directors. The daily activities of the institute are led by a director. The institute’s premises in Rome include a library, archaeological laboratory and rooms for researchers. There is a supportive society (Föreningen Rominstitutets Vänner) with five sections in Sweden.

Research Seminar

Victoria Moses (University of Arizona): Meat and the Birth of Rome.

Abstract:

In the 9th-5th centuries BCE, Rome changed rapidly from a small settlement of huts into a fortified urban center. The physical reorganization of the city is inseparable from the social transformations that went along with it, including changes in social roles, economics, and religion. I investigate the emergence of urbanism in Rome and its environs through zooarchaeology, or the study of animal remains from archaeological sites, to demonstrate what early Romans ate and what they sacrificed during this time of transition and how meat relates to the foundation of Rome.
