The Sabinensis Ager revisited : a field survey in the Sabina Tiberina.

Di Giuseppe, H. and Sansoni, M. and Williams, J. and Witcher, R. E. (2002) 'The Sabinensis Ager revisited : a field survey in the Sabina Tiberina.', Papers of the British School at Rome., 70 . pp. 99-150.


This paper presents the results of a small field survey in the Sabina Tiberina, to the southwest of the ancient town of Cures Sabini, north of Rome. The choice of study area and objectives respond to specific research problems identified by the British School at Rome's Tiber Valley Project. These included an assessment of the apparently marked difference in settlement density on the two banks of the Tiber. An area previously surveyed by Muzzioli was selected with the hope of refining the chronology of known sites and identifying previously unidentified settlement. The research area offered the opportunity to assess a mid-Republican land-division proposed by Muzzioli. The re-survey identified most previously known sites as well as a significant number of new sites. This suggests the lower settlement density of the Sabina may relate to less intensive field-survey techniques. It was also possible to extend significantly the chronology of known sites, into the Sabine and late antique periods.
