9780199546831: Rome (Oxford Archaeological Guides)

Capital and showcase of the Roman Empire and the center of Christian Europe, the city of Rome is the largest archaeological site in the world. In the new Second Edition of her popular handbook, Amanda Claridge again presents an indispensable guide to all significant monuments in Rome dating from 800 BC to 600 AD, including such breathtaking structures as the Capitoline Hill, the Roman Forum, the Colosseum, the Mausoleums of Augustus and Hadrian, the Circus Maximus, and the Catacombs. Featuring over 220 high-quality maps, site plans, diagrams, and photographs, the edition is divided into fourteen main areas, with star ratings to help you plan your visit in advance. The book also features glossaries of architectural terms, information about opening times, suggestions for further reading, and much more. The Second Edition has been extensively revised--the author has added more than 20 new sites and illustrations, re-organized and expanded the itineraries to suit the many changes that have taken place in the past decade, and fully updated the practical information.

About the Author:


Amanda Claridge is Professor of Roman Archaeology at Royal Holloway University of London. Assistant Director of the British School at Rome from 1980 to 1994, her wider archaeological activities have included fieldwork in Rome, elsewhere in Italy, North Africa, and Turkey, and the study of Roman
marbles and sculptural techniques, on which she is a noted authority.

Review:


"We have long needed what no one before Claridge has provided: a synthesis, balanced and user-friendly, of all [the] recent scholarship, one that sets Roman monuments in their proper urban and historical contexts, and accurately describes what is currently known or thought about them. . . . [T]ravellers . . .will welcome a synthesis so balanced, intelligent and well informed, and will find Amanda Claridge a fine companion on their archaeological walks in Rome."--Times Literary Supplement


"Claridge's book will appeal to a range of readers--from armchair archaelogists to serious visitors and students of Rome's archaeology.... Recommended."--CHOICE
