Abstract
This work examines the information that can be gained about the town of Gabii through analysis of a portion of the Gabii Project’s archeological findings in 2022. The history and social position of the town of Gabi is initially laid out, beginning with the foundation of the city, how it was perceived in Roman culture, and its current status as an archeological site under the administration of the Gabii Project. The focus then narrows to a single section of the site, Area J. In order to shed light on this recently excavated area, the work of the 2022 dig season is described, and artifacts from this space are presented. Ceramic bricks and tiles from Area J with signs of direct human or animal contact were cataloged and analyzed to provide a deeper understanding of the environment and historical context of Gabii. The selection of cataloged items was found to provide further information about the source of building material used in later Gabine structures, as well as indicating a range of time when new materials were still being brought into the city.
