9780521789820: Becoming Roman: The Origins of Provincial Civilization in Gaul

This book studies the processes conventionally termed "Romanization" through an analysis of the experience of Roman rule over the Gallic province of the empire in the period 200 BC-AD 300. It examines how and why Gallo-Roman civilization emerged from the confrontation between the iron-age cultures of Gaul and the civilization we call classical. It develops an original synthesis and argument that will form a bridge between the disciplines of classics and archaeology and will be of interest to all students of cultural change.

Review:

"[Woolf] has, however, produced a study that any serious student of the ancient world must read, and that is without question the best book on the western provinces written this decade." Michael Kulikowski, Bryn Mawr Classical Review

"Woolf's book is a significant contribution to the discusison of Romanization and well worthy of attention." Ernst KÜnzl, Classical World

"It is a essential read for those scholars interested in the cultural change undergone by the provincials of first-century Gaul." J. Kent Gregory, Religious Studies Review

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2000. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This book is a study of the process conventionally termed Romanization through an investigation of the experience of Rome s Gallic provinces in the late Republic and early empire. Beginning with a rejection of the concept of Romanization it describes the nature of Roman power in Gaul and the Romans own understanding of these changes. Successive chapters then map the chronology and geography of change and offer new interpretations of urbanism, rural civilization, consumption and cult, before concluding with a synoptic view of Gallo-Roman civilization and of the origins of provincial cultures in general. The work draws on literary and archaeological material to make a contribution to the cultural history of the empire which will be of interest to ancient historians, classical archaeologists and all interested in cultural change.
