Ancient Urban Planning in the Mediterranean: New Research Directions

Greek and Roman monuments have been disappearing from the collective psyche for millennia; as soon as a new Roman emperor assumed power, for example, the urban template and architectural landscape was reshaped and adapted to suit the new rule. More recently, the rapid acceleration in the loss of collective memory through the re-alignment of urban plans and the obliteration of monuments has made clear that ancient planning and architecture as we have come to know it, is moving away from the physical realm, to the imaginary psyche. However, although they may be distant in time, ancient cities still have much to reveal to us in the present day. One particular characteristic of the Classical city has endured: the urban grid. Even where ancient roadways and architecture have been decimated to make room for new urban and at times, rural spaces, substantial portions of an earlier ancient grid can be retraced and the wider plan can, to varying extents, be recovered. As an example, this is evidence through new advances in remote sensing and readily accessible satellite imagery. This book assembles the most up-to-date research on the design and construction of ancient cities in the wider Mediterranean, reappraising and shedding light on these lost Classical plans. Whether intentional or not, each Classical plan has the capacity to embody specific messages linked to such notions as heritage and identity . Focusing on Greek and Roman grid traces - both literal and figurative - this rich selection of innovative studies explores the ways that the collective memory of cities and smaller settlements is altered by the introduction of re-aligned plans and newly constructed monuments within an ancient plan. They also consider how an entire city can be monumentalised by virtue of inheriting a Classical plan."
