This contribution stands apart from the other studies in this collection, and is offered as a companion to the preceding; in contrast to the other papers, it does not profess to present the results of fieldwork. It does, however, seek to put before teachers a good deal of Italian scholarship that is not available in English; and to supplement the brief history of Aquileia in the foregoing article and, by concentrating on the colony's foundation, to provide a case study in Roman imperialism that will illuminate the important institution of colonization. It also intends to demonstrate a number of the ways in which archaeological investigation can contribute to historical analysis and thus underline the importance of such survey exercises as Traviglia's 'Beyond the City Walls' Project.
