The River and the City: the Tiber in Archaeology, Cult, and Myth - 26/03/2018, Roma (Italy)

The importance of the Tiber in the history of Rome hardly needs arguing. The city was founded at, and flourished owing to, a strategic location near the Tiber Island and on defensible hills overlooking the river. It was both a border protecting the city against invaders from the north and east but also a source of trouble for the population. The great river flooded whole areas of the city on a regular basis during the Archaic period and the Republic. A great amount of research has been done on the Tiber Valley and the surrounding area, particularly at the British School at Rome. Various aspects of Tiberine phenomena in the city of Rome have also been addressed from an archaeological, literary and historical standpoint.
