Abstract:
This paper is intended as a survey of the major points in the debate over land use in Roman Italy in the Late Republic and Early Empire. The transition from Rome the agricultural backwater to Rome the international power created a series of social, political, economic, and demographic changes in Italy, further sparking a series of struggles over land use that brought down the Republic and defined the policies and problems of the Empire. Was the Italian peasant displaced from the land for the benefit of the latifundia and the wealthy, or did he prosper in the countryside along-side the large estates? What is the nature of the evidence? Recent archaeological evidence has suggested new answers to these questions, and new processual models have been proposed based on that evidence. This study will address and evaluate both the literary-historical and archaeological arguments.
