Description - Houses, Villas, and Palaces in the Roman World by Alexander G. McKay
This text examines the simple houses as well as the mansions, estates and palatial buildings of the Roman world, dealing especially with such topics as house design, interiors, furnishings and gardens. Attempting to show the similarity between Roman civilization and modern times, the book describes innovative high-rise apartments, compact civic squares, large public buildings, temples, shopping centres and commercial areas. It also describes the conditions of life in the Roman provinces, where recent discoveries have shed fresh light on private and communal living. The book includes an abundance of site plans and reconstructions.
