Long Description
This book is the third of its kind, specifically devoted to the use of theory in Roman archaeology. Within a general framework of critique, remedial research and theory building, the authors tackle subjects such as the social configurations of space, technology and the economy, and social relations. Future areas of research are identified, and the tone of the book is essentially optimistic.
