|Report||The PR.INT workshop “Spoils in the Middle Roman Republic - An Economy of Plunder” brought together a group of scholars from Canada, Spain, the UK, the Netherlands, and Germany to discuss the role of spoils – defined as a forcefully initiated process of resource reallocation – for the creation and maintenance of the Imperium Romanum. Discussions focused on the acquisition and distribution of external resources as well as its impact on society. The workshop was a great success and yielded remarkable and potentially ground-breaking insights into the “classical” period of the Roman Republic. The established contacts will ensure that the RUB remains part of the vibrant debate on republican Rome.|
