I thought this comm might be an ideal place to tell you about Festival of British Archaeology that's happening from 17th July to 1st August 2010. Info can be found hereand hopefully there's something that'll interest you.
I am looking for pictures, maps, drawings or texts that can give me an accurate idea of what would be the view that Octavius Augustus would have from his house at the Pallatine Hill during the last years of his life, which I guess it's almost the same as asking for a view of Rome in 5-14 AD.
Anybody knows about web pages or books that maybe have attempted reconstructions? Or the best way to approach is making a list of public/private buildings of the time individually and them put them together because there is no such thing? (if so, any specific place to look? -- if not I'll keep looking in different places).
I just found this community, and thought I would join. I was wondering how many people have looked into community archaeology. I know it's a pretty new subfield of archaeology, but I can't seem to find that many recent sources about it. I'm writing a paper right now on the topic and looking at, mainly, the involvment of indigenous communities within archaeological projects. But, for some reason, alot of the articles I have found are from the early 90's. I was hoping for some more recent stuff. So, if anyone has any info about the subject it would be appreciated.
