Princeton. 2011. Princeton University Press. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Dustjacket. Translated by Stephen Sartarelli. 32 halftones. 32 line illustrations. 10 tables. 208 pages. hardcover. 9780691139227. keywords: ARCHAEOLOGY/ANCIENT HISTORY. inventory # 38026. FROM THE PUBLISHER - ROME’S MOST IMPORTANT AND CONTROVERSIAL ARCHAEOLOGIST SHOWS WHY THE MYTH OF THE CITY’S FOUNDING ISN’T ALL MYTH A RADICALLY NEW VIEW ON THE NATURE AND PURPOSE OF CONSCIOUSNESS. Andrea Carandini’s archaeological discoveries and controversial theories about ancient Rome have made international headlines over the past few decades. In this book, he presents his most important findings and ideas, including the argument that there really was a Romulus—a first king of Rome— who founded the city in the mid-eighth century BC, making it the world’s first city-state, as well as its most influential. Rome: Day One makes a powerful and provocative case that Rome was established—if not built—in a one-day ceremony, and that Rome’s first day was also western civilization’s. Historians tell us that there is no more reason to believe that Rome was actually established by Romulus than there is to believe that he was suckled by a she-wolf. But Carandini, drawing on his own excavations as well as historical and literary sources, argues that the core of Rome’s founding myth is not purely mythical. In this illustrated account, he makes the case that a king whose name might have been Romulus founded Rome one April 21st of an unknown year, most likely in a ceremony in which a white bull and cow pulled a plow to trace the position of a wall marking the blessed soil of the new city. This ceremony establishing the Palantine Wall, which Carandini discovered, inaugurated the political life of a city that, through its later empire, would influence much of the world. Uncovering the birth of a city that gave birth to a world, Rome: Day One reveals as never before a truly epochal event. ‘Dateline Rome, April 21, 753 BC. Andrea Carandini, archaeologist extraordinary, burrows down through thirteen meters of fill to hit pay dirt—Day 1 of Urbs Roma. What could be more exciting! History and archaeology rub shoulders with Freudian psychology as Carandini, a Roman native, takes us on an enthralling guided tour through the material and written sources for the primal moment of the City that would create a World, our world. Urbi et Orbi, indeed.’ —Paul Cartledge, University of Cambridge. ISBN: 9780691139227.
