Extract

The significance of the African provinces is well-appreciated in historical studies of the Roman Empire, but there is a distinct lack of good summaries in English on recent developments in the field of study. Some introductory books sacrifice readability in favour of detail, others offer a more synthetic view, but lack depth. The bibliography is now vast and ever more intimidating for the uninitiated; we hope that what follows will serve both as a useful introduction for those new to the field and as a refresher for others. In this review we have concentrated on developments which seem to us to be of particular importance, whilst directing the reader's attention to basic references in other areas. The emphasis throughout is on archaeological work and this will explain short measure having to be given to some important historic and epigraphic studies. Another choice had to be the geographical limits of the study and, mostly, we have restricted our coverage to Africa Proconsularis and Numidia, though certain themes demand expanding the horizons to sites in the Mauretanian provinces and Cyrenaica also. We have considered 1970 as an appropriate start-date for our survey, allowing us to review developments across the last twenty five years, though necessarily with greater emphasis being placed on publications of the last decade.

1 The research for this article (and the opportunity to write it together in England during the Autumn 1994) was made possible by the generosity of the Leverhulme Trust (who awarded the first author a Research Fellowship), the Society for the Promotion of Roman Studies, Leicester University Arts Budget Centre (DJM), and the University of Dayton, Office of the Provost and College of Arts and Sciences, and Churchill College, Cambridge (RBH). Particular thanks are due to Phillipe Leveau and Dick Whittaker for making their personal libraries available to us at different moments and to the librarians of the Centre Camille Jullian, Aix-en-Provence, for innumerable kindnesses. Among the many other scholars who assisted our research special mention must be made to Ted Buttrey, Noel Duval, Lisa Fentress, Peter Garnsey, Henry Hurst, Tim Potter, Pol Trousset and Colin Wells. We are also grateful to the readers who provided several helpful comments. Needless to say we alone take full responsibility for all sins of omission and any heresies expressed here. With a few exceptions it has not been possible to refer to works published after December 1994. Thanks are due to A. Ennabli for permission to reproduce Fig. 2 and to D. Miles (Fig. 1) and A. Graham (Fig. 3) for their artwork. Finally a special word of appreciation for Jenny Mattingly and Becky Hitchner who gave us time, encouragement, and expert proof-reading.

They also proved themselves, on occasion, faithless, murderous and (in Jugurtha's case) manic-depressive. To idealize them is to do them a disservice, for to present a falsified picture of a people's past is to betray them. Historical truth, however harsh and cruel, never fails to give to those who know how to receive it – who can grasp the past with human understanding–the consistent clarity of vision that alone makes it possible to plan for the future’.

172 This is an extraordinary observation, for if upheld by future work, it suggests that Rome condoned either through design or disinterest the rearmament and military renewal of her old enemy. Th e completion of such a scheme would undoubtedly have provided the Senate, Cato's rhetoric in support, with the necessary ammunition to justify a war of extermination against its African nemesis.

173 The massive and widespread layer of Punic destruction debris (or ‘PDD’ as it has come to be euphemistically referred to) testifies to both the thoroughness of the city's destruction at the hands of the Romans and the subsequent levelling in the Augustan period.
