Early Rome and Latium: Economy and Society C. 1000 to 500 BC

Synopsis

What was happening in Rome when Homer was writing the Iliad in Greece? In this book, Christopher Smith fully details the archaeological and literary evidence from early Rome and the surrounding region of Latium, spanning from the Late Bronze Age to the end of the sixth century. He attempts to set the region of Latium in its proper context as participant, witness, and, ultimately, victim of the radical transformation of civilization in central Italy and in the Mediterranean as a whole.
