Syllabus
Prerequisites:
Target skills and knowledge:: Histria terra.
Settlement, infrastructural and economic dynamics
in intimo maris Hadriatici sinu

The course aims to offer students an example of territorial analysis in which the specific knowledge and methods learned during the first degree lessons of Topography will be actually used and applied. This work will be developed on a practical level and will consider a geo-topographicl area easily reachable and “verifiable” and it should give students the awareness about the problems and the difficulties of the daily research care on the field, shifting from theoretical acqusitions to the targeted practice of a survey.
Course unit contents: This course will take into account the Istrian penisnula, under the different aspects through which it is defined: geo-topographical position, morphology, ancient settlement choices between natives and the Romans (analysing the urban structures of the most significant sites), road system, agrarian organisations, import and export economy. The course will be completed by a brief excursion to Istria, aimed at a survey which will verify the “earth truth”.
Planned learning activities:
Textbooks: K. Mihovilić, L’Istria dal IV al I sec. a.C., in AAAd, XXXVI, 1991, pp. 157-164. --: --, --.

G. Rosada, Dove portano le strade dell’Histria terra, in “Histria Antiqua”, 17, 2009, pp. 49-64. --: --, --.
Additional notes about suggested reading:: There are no specific publications on ancient Istria that are both scientifically correct and suitable for students; however many sectorial works do exist. Therefore, the task of the professor during the lessons (attendance will be for this reason compulsory) will be to highlight the main lines for the study and the anlysis of the historical-archaeological aspects, which characterised the peninsula, and to give little by little the useful bibliographical references for those who will be interested to study them for the exam. Only very generally, the above mentioned works can already be quoted.
