The Roman Villa: Villa Urbana
UPenn Museum of Archaeology, Jan 1, 1998 - Architecture - 110 pages
This edited volume, based upon the first Williams Symposium on Classical Architecture, focuses on the theme of the well-appointed Roman country house. Using archaeological and textual evidence, the chapters address issues of villa composition, economy, and society. This fine volume also explores the possible reasons that Greeks did not embrace the villa lifestyle as the Romans so eagerly did. Finally, this book provides a promising foundation for future studies of the nature of the villa phenomenon.
