Roman Iberia: Economy, Society and Culture

by

Roman Iberia: Economy, Society and Culture Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the first book to examine the economic impact of external cultures - the Phoenicians, Greeks and Romans - upon the Iberian peninsula throughout the first millennium BC. Benedict Lowe provides a synthesis of recent archaeological work to place Spain in the broader context of debates about Romanisation during the Republic and Early Imperial period. He adopts a chronological approach, focusing on the processes of integration and regionalism in the economy of the Iberian peninsula. The book begins with an introduction to the kingdom of Tartessos and the impact of the Phoenician and Greek colonists upon the economy of the peninsula, setting the scene for Rome's conquest. Succeeding chapters explore the growing Roman presence, culminating in the first century AD. Combining literary and archaeological evidence, "Roman Iberia" provides an in-depth analysis of the Romanisation of Iberia in economic terms: villas, urbanism, pottery and trade and the interaction of Roman and native populations.

Book News Annotation:

Lowe (history, Western Oregon U.) investigates the economic impact of the Roman Empire's conquest of the Iberian Peninsula in the first millennium BC through a synthesis of the archaeological literature combined with analysis of the literary evidence. In his chronological narrative, he addresses such topics as the influence of Rome on the intensification of agriculture and the appearance of the first villas, the influx of Italian immigrants to work the silver mines of the Sierra de Cartagena and the immigrants' subsequent social position, the appearance of large scale fish salteries, industrial production of pottery, and the evidence for and causes of recession.
