The work of Jean-Marie Lassère in Roman North Africa has provided a foundation for understanding where and when people were moving across the region in the 1st–3rd centuries CE using several hundred epigraphic examples. In this talk, I closely examine one case of four inscriptions from Lambaesis where people claimed to be from Hadrumetum and integrate them into an understanding of the road system of the area to demonstrate not just where people were moving, but how they were moving across the landscape. This one case study sets the foundation for a wider study of the epigraphic record and the road system across Roman North Africa that fits into more modern trends of mobility and migration studies.

Kelsey Museum Flash Talks are 15-minute Zoom lectures by Kelsey curators, staff members, researchers, and graduate students talking about 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.
