dc.description.abstractThe author spent five weeks in the summer of 2009 at a five-week archeological field school in the ancient city of Gabii, near Rome. He reviews the history of interaction between Rome and Gabii and the role of Lapis Gabinus, a unique stone mined there. Studying its use provides information about society in Rome and Latium that help construct a clearer picture of ancient Roman architecture and history. Romans chose their building materials with purpose, and Augustus's Forum highlights the social standing and practical nature of this particular tufa, and the relationship between Rome and its close neighbor. New evidence brought to light by field work at Gabii will help to explain the fall of Gabii and the role Lapis Gabinus quarries played late in the occupation of Gabii.en_US
