Full description for Roman Building
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.
