The late Roman Imperial Villa at Glac

This talk focuses on the vast imperial villa site at Glac, located just outside the late Roman imperial capital of Sirmium, which is currently being excavated by the Pannonia Project of the University of Sydney.

After outlining the extraordinary transformation of the site from rural villa to a palatial complex in the late third century AD, it will be argued that the Glac site and similar imperial villa sites across the Balkans underline the importance of local identity for the Tetrarchs who ruled the Roman Empire during this period.

RichardMiles is Professor of Roman History and Archaeology at the University of Sydney and Co-Director of the Glac Archaeological Project.
