Building Mid-Republican Rome

Labor, Architecture, and the Urban Economy

Seth Bernard

  • Employs the evidence for Roman architecture as a means of studying Roman urban history
  • Incorporates the Mid-Republic into the study of Roman economic history by insisting that many of the institutional structures of the later Roman economy emerged for the first time in this period
  • Includes a new catalog of Mid-Republican public building projects at Rome, incorporating both textual sources and archaeological data including the results of the author's fieldwork
  • Presents a new way to model and contextualize the labor costs of Mid-Republican architecture
