Tijdschrift voor Mediterrane Archeologie | Groningen Institute of Archaeology | Published : 2006


This article presents some of the preliminary results of the project 'Carta archeologica del Comune di Nettuno', conducted by the Groningen Institute of Archaeology (GIA). Surveys within the border ot the community of Nettuno show the presence of a subsistence based economy at least until the mid-Republican period. The construction or paving of the road from Lanuvium to Antium triggers a dramatic shift in settlement type and location and brings social-economic integration within the Roman Empire for the area under study.
