Review quote

"As a collection, the volume's essays demonstrate the rich variety of archaeological approaches to this period and indicate their future directions. It rightfully deserves to remain a standard work for some time to come." (American Journal of Archaeology, July 2015, 119.3) "However, this does not detract from the overall achievement of the Companion, the scholarly content and impressive scope of which ensures that it will be of use to those studying a range of disciplines." (History & Archaeology, 1 October 2014) Recipient of a PROSE Awards 2013 Honorable Mention "This collection punches well above the weight of most of similar editorial enterprises. D. E. has impressively succeeded in gathering a body of work that does justice both to the complexity of the material and the diversity of the scholarly debate ... Readers will encounter, as a rule, reliable and often insightful overviews of complex problems, with plenty of engagement with the ancient evidence and invaluable bibliographical information." (Journal of Classics Teaching, 1 June 2013)

A collection of original essays by both emerging and established archaeologists with a wide range of nationalities and areas of interest, "A Companion to the Archaeology of the Roman Republic" reveals how differing approaches and methodologies contribute to an understanding of the Republic across the Mediterranean basin.
