Course Description: This course explores the cultural influences from the Mediterranean area (as studied in the course Classical Archaeology) on the periphery of the Roman Empire, especially on the area of modern northwestern Europe. The course focuses specifically on the boundaries of the Roman empire, how they were created and how they functioned. The impact of those boundaries on people living in these peripheral areas is covered along with the relationship between the empire‚Äôs center, Rome, and the periphery. The course dives into theoretical concepts related to boundaries and the spread of Roman culture (Romanization) and look at various case studies. The course includes visits to museums and archaeological sites in the Netherlands to study local Roman culture and to get a first-hand insight into the long arm of Rome. As such, this course bridges the gap between the material culture of the Mediterranean Greco-Roman world and medieval archaeology of northern Europe.
