0 Reviews
Focusing primarily on visual forms of representation, this volume brings together studies as disparate as the iconography of power in Mediterranean prehistory and clothing and cultural meaning in the First and Second World Wars. This volume is a fascinating introduction to archaeological, classical and historical study by contributors from both sides of the Atlantic.
