After thirty seasons of field work on the Palatine Hill, the author felt it was time to put the results in book form. It is an archaeological, architectural, geological, and historical study of the development of the Palatine from Prehistoric Times to 476 C.E. An Epilogue covers events to 2007. The Palatine is important due to the fact that this is where the City of Rome had its beginnings. It was also the seat of the Imperial Government from 27 B.C.E. until 330 C.E. Even after Constantine had shifted the capital to Byzantium, it retained its mystical importance. Chapter One deals with previous work on the Palatine. The Second Chapter shows the geological evolution of the hill. Chapters Three through Seven deals with construction on the hill. The Epilogue briefly deals with excavations in the 21st Century. A Bibliography is attached at the end.
