Book Description

22 April 1999
Now in paperback, Roman Buildings is a thorough and systematic examination of Roman architecture and building practice, with over 750 illustrations . It looks at large- scale public buildings as well as more modest homes and shops. Placing emphasis on the technical aspects of the subject, it follows the process of building through each stage -- from quarry to standing wall, from tree to roof timbers -- and how these materials were obtained or manufactured. The author also discusses interior decoration and looks at the practical aspects of water supply, heating and roads.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful fundamental book - poor translation 14 May 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book came with great delight among the scholars of Roman architecture. In here is presented our up-to-date knowledge on Roman building materials and techniques. The richeness of drawings makes the explanations easier to understand and the reference to archaeological sites and monuments from all over the Roman world gives an overview of the geographic distributions of such techniques. The translation from French edited in 1997 has a series of mistakes (image captions, etc.) that tend to be annoying. Nonetheless, a must to any student or passionate reader on Roman archaeology and architecture.
