Editorial Reviews


Is abundantly illustrated and certainly brings new perspectives on the history of early Rome.
The Journal of Indo-European Studies

In this abundantly illustrated volume, Ross Holloway draws a vivid picture of the vestiges of the past in the Eternal City and its neighborhood. . . . an instructive guide through the earliest remainders of ancient Rome and Latium.
The Journal of Indo-European Studies

. . . fills a gap in the English-language literature on early Rome in two important ways. First, it provides an overview of recent and ongoing excavations of sites and . . . of new approaches to the archaeology of the area. Second, Holloway usefully presents the evidence in the context of major discoveries and controversies of the past century. . . . a sound, fairly traditional evidence-based presentation of findings. The main text offers an invaluable summary of recent discoveries from temples, tombs, and houses, and from specific sites that have produced significant material culture in the past quarter century.

Format: Paperback
As a self-taught student on the history of archaeology in Rome, Prof. Holloway's book is welcomed edition to a long neglected area of research and interest in field of classical archaeology in Rome. Prof. Holloway works also illustrates some of the problems both past and present archaeologist i.e G.Boni, E. Gjerstad and the yet to be published work of Prof. A. Carandini , whose controversial excavations at the base of the Palatine hill (1985-1990) which Prof. Holloway briefly illustrates the significance of Carandini's work. Anyone interested in the field of classical archaeology in Rome, and the history of archaeology on Rome during the late 19th cent,and the early 20th century, will find this book both interesting and enjoyable, especially the illustrations of recent discovers in the Roman forum during the past decade.
