The Roman Countryside & Villa to Village: The Transformation of the Roman Countryside in Italy, c. 400-1000
Humphries, Mark (2005) The Roman Countryside & Villa to Village: The Transformation of the Roman Countryside in Italy, c. 400-1000. Classics Ireland, 12 . pp. 86-89.
These volumes are published in the series âDuckworth Debates in Archaeologyâ edited by Richard Hodges. Each is designed to introduce students and scholars âto a theme which is the subject of contemporary debate in archaeologyâ (thus the back cover blurb). The books are short in compass but are provided with thorough bibliographies and indices (this latter much to the credit of series editor and publisher alike). The two volumes considered here are very different in scope and character. In what follows, I will devote most space to Stephen L. Dysonâs The Roman Countryside, because it is likely to be of more interest to readers of this journal.
