Chapter Summary

The paper deals with the various types of historical information about Early Rome current in the Late Republic and explores their foundations and complex interrelationships in both literary and extra-literary sources. Discussing the role of formal memorials and other purpose built structures as well as mere locations, the author enters into the lively debate as to how such lieux de mémoire contributed to the transmission and creation of historical traditions. Though recognizing the important role of extra-documentary sources for the formation of the familiar historiographical narratives, he stresses the importance of writing for the survival of accurate historical data.
