  • ISBN 10 : 0801492459


Roman Architecture Book Description :

Frank Sear traces the evolution of architecture during the four centuries from the late Republic, when Roman building came of age, to A.D. 330, when Constantine moved the empire's capital to Constantinople.

Incorporating the latest archaeological findings, Sear treats much more than stylist innovations; he carefully considers the b...
