What are we doing when we walk into an archaeological museum or onto an archaeological site? What do the objects and features we encounter in these unique places mean and, more specifically, how do they convey to us something about the beliefs and activities of formerly living humans? In short, how do visible remains and ruins in the present give meaning to the human past? Karen Bassi addresses these questions through detailed close readings of canonical works spanning the archaic to the classical periods of ancient Greek culture, showing how the past is constituted in descriptions of what narrators and characters see in their present context. She introduces the term protoarchaeological to refer to narratives that navigate the gap between linguistic representation and empirical observation—between words and things—in accessing and giving meaning to the past. Such narratives invite readers to view the past as a receding visual field and, in the process, to cross the disciplinary boundaries that divide literature, history, and archaeology. Aimed at classicists, literary scholars, ancient historians, cultural historians, and archaeological theorists, the book combines three areas of research: time as a feature of narrative structure in literary theory; the concept of “the past itself” in the philosophy of history; and the ontological status of material objects in archaeological theory. Each of five central chapters explores how specific protoarchaeological narratives—from the fate of Zeus’ stone in Hesiod’s Theogony to the contest between words and objects in Aristophanes’ Frogs—both expose and attempt to bridge this gap. Throughout, the book serves as a response to Herodotus’ task in writing the Histories, namely, to ensure that “the past deeds of men do not fade with time.”

Bathing In Public In The Roman World

For the Roman, bathing was a social event. Public baths, in fact, were one of the few places where large numbers of Romans gathered daily in an informal context. This book is the first to study the Roman public bathing experience primarily as a historical, social, and cultural phenomenon rather than a technological or architectural one. The focus here is on the bathers not the baths. Fagan reconstructs what a trip to a Roman bath was like, and he asks when and why the baths became popular at Rome, who built and maintained the abundant bathing establishments, what the physical environment was like, what the social components of the bathing experience were, and what the sociological function of the baths was in the Roman empire's rigidly hierarchical social order. Since comparative evidence from other bathing cultures is also employed, it will be of interest to social anthropologists and historical sociologists.

The Roman Empire of the Principate may be understood as a consortium of communities bound together by ties that were institutional and personal. Civic patrons played a central role in that process by which subjects became citizens.
