Provincial Roman Archeology
The Provincial Roman Archeology deals with the material remains in the Roman provinces . Due to the history of research, a geographical focus is on the north-west provinces.
In contrast to the more art-historical approach, which has long dominated Classical Archeology , Provincial Roman Archeology primarily asked questions about everyday life and adopted methods from prehistory and early history . Since Classical Archeology has meanwhile also opened up to socio-economic issues in many cases, the disciplines have come closer together in this regard. The main difference today is that Provincial Roman Archeology is primarily concerned with the manifestation of material culture that resulted in the provinces through the combination of typically Roman and indigenous elements.
The subject of archeology of the Roman provinces in Germany is currently taught at the universities in Frankfurt am Main, Freiburg, Cologne, Munich and Bamberg. In Austria Provincial Roman Archeology is always carried out together with Classical Archeology. It is possible to set priorities in the Roman provincial area in Vienna, Salzburg, Graz and Innsbruck. In Switzerland, the subject can be studied in Basel, Bern and Lausanne.
