The protohistory section at the Baths of Diocletian: a practical guide to discover the culture of the peoples of Latium leading up to the founding of Rome.
[The Protohistory of the Latin Peoples / National Museum of Rome Baths of Diocletian] In June 2000 the protohistory section of the Baths of Diocletian was reopened to the public. The guide published for the occasion, with clear, thorough texts and fine illustrations, explains the oldest archaeological evidence of late protohistoric Latin culture, or the era of the historic foundation of Rome.
The archaeological materials are used for a reconstruction of the social structure, economics, religion, territorial and political organization of the ancient peoples of Latium.
Discussion of the overall characteristics of the culture is followed by information on individual locations, completely documented by recent archaeological excavations and research.
