TRAC 2002


This selection of twelve papers from the twelfth annual Theoretical Roman Archaeology Conference illustrates the broad range of different theoretical approaches applied to Roman archaeology today; one trend, though, is apparent: a wider engagement with interdisciplinary research, drawing theoretical ideas from many diverse fields of study, including philosophy, psychology, history of art, and consumer theory.
