HYBRID - Street Theater: A Pompeian Neighborhood in Five Acts by Dr. Jeremy Hartnett

April 14, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm MDT



AIA Society: Boulder

When we think of Roman cities, it is tempting to conjure images of temples, baths, and amphitheaters. This talk storms into the narrow streets of Pompeii to make the case that, for most Romans, the real action happened on the neighborhood level. As told through five different stories, we will see how ancient historians repopulate “empty” ancient spaces with a raucous cast of upper-class politicians, slaves, hucksters, donkeys, and so many more – all trying to scratch out a living, make their mark, and upstage competitors in the street.
