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.
