“The Origins of Urbanism in Iron Age Europe: Revisiting the Hallstatt Fürstensitze

The development of large agglomerations is one of the most important phenomena in Later Eurasian Prehistory. In Central Europe, the origins of urbanism have long been associated with the oppida of the 2nd-1st centuries BC. However, large-scale excavations and surveys carried out over the last two decades have fundamentally modified the traditional picture of early centralization processes. New results indicate that the first urban centers north of the Alps developed between the end of the 7th and the 5th centuries BC in an area stretching from Bohemia to southern Germany and Central France. Among these so-called Fürstensitze we can highlight sites such as the Heuneburg (see Fig.), Mont Lassois, Bourges, Glauberg and Závist. This paper will summarize recent fieldwork results, showing the heterogeneity and diversity of Early Iron Age central places and outlining their diachronic development.

“The Comparative Archaeology of the Roman Conquest: Gaul, Iberia and Scotland”

The Roman conquest represents one of the most crucial events in European history. Recent fieldwork is providing an increasing amount of archaeological data directly related to the military campaigns in Western Europe, including military camps, sieges and spectacular battlefields. Thanks to this new evidence, it is now possible to develop a more accurate picture of the conquest and its social and cultural impact on indigenous societies. This lecture will adopt a comparative approach, presenting selected evidence for the conquest of three regions in which Roman imperialism revealed itself in its most aggressive form: northern Gaul, northern Iberia and northern Britain.
