About the Author

Amanda Claridge is Reader in Classical Archaeology, Royal Holloway, University of London, and was formerly Lecturer in Archaeology at St John's College, Oxford. Assistant Director of the British School in Rome from 1980 to 1994, she is the author of numerous publications on Roman archaeology. Her wider archaeological activities include fieldwork in Italy, North Africa, and Turkey, and the study of Roman marbles and sculptural techniques, on which she is a noted authority.


"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
