Abstract

The study of rural Italy during the Roman period can no longer content itself with a never-ending analysis of literary sources given the multiplication of topographical studies, archeological digs, and regional monographs. The new material produced, however, springs from heteroclite investigatory methods, and its interpretation is not free of subjectivity. Taking stock of this work concerning all of Italy leads one to wonder about the validity of the usually accepted "chronological breaks": The Punic wars, the Greek period, and the end of the second century A.D., in particular. For the usual schema of modes of cultivation, production and property automatically following each other in time, we would substitute one of complex agrarian structures co-existing within the same geographical region—and even at the same point in time—with certain structures dominating others. We would in no way exclude serious divergences in regional economic development, as traces of pre-Roman substrata remain present during the Roman period.
