Dan Diffendale (American Academy in Rome): Rethinking Tuff in Regal and Republican Rome.

Did early Roman builders looking for cut stone turn to the most readily available sources, which could be quarried below their feet, or seek it from more distant sources capable of providing more suitable stone? What role did river transport play in selecting building stone at Rome? And what was the relative contribution of state- vs. privately-held quarries? I address these questions and sketch out the goals and methods of the QUADRATA (Quarry provenience and Archaeological Dating of the Roman-Area Tuffs in Antiquity) Project.
