Description

The Roads of Roman Italy offers a complete re-evaluation of both the evidence and the interpretation of Roman land transport. The book utilises archaeological, epigraphic and literary evidence for Roman communications, drawing on recent approaches to the human landscape developed by geographers. Among the topics considered are:

* the relationship between the road and the human landscape

* the administration and maintenance of the road system

* the role of roads as imperial monuments

* the economics of road construction and urban development.
