Chapter Summary

This paper focuses on the evidence of early sanctuaries and public buildings as landmarks of collective memory, which were still visible and even used in the late 3rd century bc, the age of the historian Fabius Pictor. If some religious buildings and many areas of Rome were completely rebuilt or drastically modified in the mid-Republican period, there are also many other cases of archaic sanctuaries that were still well preserved and in use until the 3rd century bc or later. Recent archaeological research can help us to reconstruct this landscape of memory, mainly based on monumenta like temples and smaller places of cult, archaeologically attested as votive deposits.
