Mosaics in Roman Britain: Stories in Stone Stockists

The stories illustrated in the mosaic pavements that have survived from Roman Britain graphically link us to the world of the Romans in a way that literature with its nuances of interpretation cannot. After explaining how and why mosaic pavements were made Dr. Patricia Witts looks at many of the 200 figured Roman mosaics that can be enjoyed in museums and sites throughout the country. Most portray mythological characters and the author explains the underlying myths; others are taken from daily life or depict animals birds and marine creatures. This lavishly illustrated study is accompanied by a full glossary of technical terms and a gazetteer of relevant sites and museums.Key Features:192 pagesPaperbackPublished in 2005
