Archaeology of Ancient Rome
by Anthony King
For over a thousand years Rome was the center of an empire which covered most of the known world. The Roman achievement is still visible; as the expanding nation conquered, it built roads, temples, country villas and towns. The magnificent ruins of the Temple of Jupiter at Baalbek in Lebanon, the ruined city of Leptis Magna in North Africa and Hadrian's Wall in northern England all bear witness to Rome's glory.
Despite their familiarity, these remains and the civilization they represent can only be correctly understood through archaeology. Techniques such as aerial photography and stratigraphy have enabled archaeologists to reevaluate such notable sites as Pompeii, Fishbourne Palace and the Catacombs. The book is arranged by subject -- the army, country life, town life, entertainment, religion and so on -- to give an impression of daily life for all classes of Romans, covering subjects as diverse as Roman attitudes to animals and marriage among the armed forces.
Archaeology of Ancient Rome is vividly recounted by Anthony King, a practicing archaeologist and an authority on Roman pottery. Illustrated with over 250 stunning photographs and drawings, over half of them in color, this book will be of interest to students of ancient history and the general reader alike.
