MOSAICS IN ROMAN BRITAIN: STORIES IN STONE
Published by Tempus. 2007
Nearly fine condition. The stories illustrated in mosaics graphically link us to the world of the Romans. Roman culture, the passing of time, and the evocation of protection and prosperity were popular themes along with scenes from the arena and the hunt. This book identifies the figures of known mosaics from Roman Britain and explains what they would have meant to a contemporary viewer and discusses their significance. White pictorial cardwraps. B/w illustrations and a few colour.
