There are traces of hundreds, if not thousands, of Roman cities. How we approach this evidence varies from teams of scholars embedded for years to desk-based approaches. There is a continuum between these points, but how we approach the Roman city can dictate what we study and how we study urbanism. In other words, our starting point or position is as important as the methodology in creating an answer.
