Abstract and Keywords
This chapter presents a North American perspective on the state of archaeological research and methodology in Roman Germany. It suggests that despite the huge amount of interest in classical antiquity in the New World, and scholarly research in other Roman provinces, the Roman west has been of so little interest as a result of educational and scholarly traditions. The chapter explains how Roman Germany and other western provinces fit into a North American view of the ancient world. It then turns to the point of how German archaeological scholarship could be made more accessible to a North American audience, and why such accessibility and extending the profile of Germany's archaeological traditions should be a desirable goal.
