Flash Talk | Fragmentation and Fragility at the Origins of Rome (and Other Iron Age Italian States)

Nic Terrenato, Kelsey Museum Director

Archaeology is radically changing our understanding of the origins of Rome (and other Iron Age Italian states). The highly centralized foundation narratives based on the written sources are being replaced by a picture of fragmentation, in which elite groups diffidently came to live together on future city sites. State institutions developed only very slowly and tentatively, and frequently fell apart.

Kelsey Museum Flash Talks are 15-minute Zoom lectures by Kelsey curators, staff members, researchers, and graduate students who discuss their recent research or current projects. Each presentation is followed by 15 minutes of Q&A. Flash Talks are free and open to all visitors. They take place at noon on the first Friday of every month.
