Abstract: More archaeology was done in Rome under the Fascists than at any time before or since.  Major sites were excavated in all parts of the City.  New museums were created.  Many important finds were made.  The aim of the archaeology was to increase the regime’s identification with ancient Rome.  Mussolini liked to play the ‘new Caesar’ and ‘new Augustus’ against the background of ancient ruins.  While the excavations were extensive, the quality of the work was often poor and much important information was lost.  Since the fall of fascism, Mussolini’s archaeology has remained a source of controversy and of corrective action.  This talk will consider both the fascist archaeological program and the changing post-war reactions to it.

Dr. Andrew M. Moore, Dean of Graduate Studies at the Rochester Institute of Technology, President of the Rochester Society of the AIA, and archaeologist,  specializes in studies of the Neolithic period.  He has excavated and examined finds from a number of sites in the Near and Middle East and Western Asia.  For eight years, he has directed excavations in Croatia, finding evidence of some of the very earliest farming practices in that region, as they spread from the Middle East through the Merditerranean some 8,000 years ago.  His assessment and analysis will form the basis of his lecture.
