Wonderful book! 8 Sept. 2011
By Gerard V. Middleton - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I cannot believe that no one has yet submitted a rave review of this book -- let me be the first. It is beautifully organized, written and illustrated, and tells the reader everything they want to know about the materials and techniques used by the ancients to construct their magnificent buildings, including also the roads, baths and aqueducts.

My only question now is: who is going to write something similar about the mediaeval churches and castles?
