Description

The colony Colonia Claudia ara Agrippinensium, located in modern day Köln, was a major center for control of Grermania Minor during the Roman Empire and a very strong military base. It was founded in 30 BCE by the Ubii, a Gaulic tribe, for their loyalty to the Romans during the Gaulic Wars of Caesar. I am planning on examining the interaction of the culture between the solders who got stationed there and the locals who originally founded the town. I believe that the interaction was a positive one with little tension and I plan to express this by showing and explaining the mixing of cultures that happened between them. I am examining this though the lens of archeological remains from the city and primary sources text on the region. I want to try to use the techniques Foucault used in The Order of Things to interpret the evidence that is left in the region.
