The essays in this collection consider specific examples and case studies of 'lost' classical cities from across the many Roman provinces in order to help understand why some 'failed' and were subsequently abandoned. Bringing together archaeologists from Britain, Spain, Italy and Hungary to share views on and findings from excavations and surveys of 'failed' towns, this volume has much to offer scholars of Roman, late antique and early medieval archaeology, urban scholars and ancient historians.
