The archaeology of Ritual Practices in archaic Rome and Latium Vetus: defining sacred-political spaces during urbanisation processes

As part of the archaeology of the sacred and with particular attention to archaic Rome and Latium Vetus, the dissertation project researches the establishment of a sacred landscape in the context of the urbanisation processes. The time frame taken into account goes from the 2nd half of the 8th century BC until the end of the 6th century BC. The project aims at investigates territorial occupation strategies adopted during the long-lasting process of the "Making of a City". More specifically, the dissertation focuses on ritual behaviours associated with the key moments of buildings representing the sacred-political sphere. By adopting an archaeological approach, it will be realized a plausible reconstruction of ritual behaviours in a socio-cultural context, thus providing an understanding of their incisiveness in the formation of a well-defined sacred landscape.
