Colonising a Colonised Territory. Settlements with Punic Roots in Roman Times

Introduction: Colonising a Colonised Territory. Settlements with Punic Roots in Roman Times

Publication ,  Chapter
Jiménez, A
2010

Traditional approaches to the process known as ‘Romanisation’ usually have taken into account the interaction between Roman colonists and native populations around the Mediterranean. Roman colonisation, however, took place in vast regions over a territory previously colonised by Carthage. How did the settlement of Punic population in certain cities affect the redefinition of identities in Republican and early Imperial times? Is there a distinctive way of ‘becoming Roman’ in these areas? Could certain trends in rituals, town planning or settlement in the landscape be observed in these contexts? How was the coexistence of different identities – Roman/Punic/local – negotiated in these populations? How was this multilayered identity expressed through material culture and to what extent might it have influenced the way these groups interacted with Roman colonists? All these issues are directly relevant to a postcolonial analysis of cities, rural settlements and ritual places with Punic roots in Roman times, where aspects like hybridisation, mimicry, coexistence of several ‘discourses’ in a given city, or expression of different types of social identity through material culture and the ‘rituals’ of the daily life, should be stressed.
