The Horace's Villa Project 1997-2003 (2vol Set): Report on New Fieldwork and Research
British Archaeological Reports, 2007 - Excavations (Archaeology) - 1032 pages
edited by by Bernard Frischer, Jane Crawford and Monica de Simone oHoraceAes Villao is the name given to the site of a Roman country house near the hill town of aeLicenzaAe (Roma), which is located approximately 30 miles from the centre of Rome. The site remains in quotation marks as, although the identification is traditional and possible, it is by no means certain. The oHoraceAes Villao Project, 1997-2003 was initiated with the main goal of adding to the knowledge of the site in terms of time and space. There were two main areas to be investigated, which could be called the aemeta-archaeologicalAe and the aearchaeologicalAe. The former entailed looking afresh at earlier investigations, while the latter offered opportunities to look at new discoveries, such as the baths, entrance, and the rural hinterland. Table of Contents - Volume 1: Introduction, Site History, New Fieldwork, Analysis of Structures and Materials, Miscellaneous Studies, Conclusion. Volume 2: Catalogue of the Principal Textual and Graphical Documentation, Illustrations and Tables, Bibliography, Index.
