FB AGUNTUM :Research Area Aguntum

The archaeological fieldwork at the Roman Municipium Claudium Aguntum defines the Research Area Aguntum as a connector between Classical (Roman) Archaeology and Roman Provincial Archaeology. In a geographical sense, as well as referring to the material culture of the Municipium, Aguntum lies between Italy and the North-Western Provinces of the Roman Empire. The research focuses on material culture studies, which include scientific analyses and studying the objects from a cultural anthropological perspective.
