The homes of the Roman elite constitute some of the most impressive survivals in the archaeological record. From richly appointed town houses such as may be seen at Pompeii and the cities buried by Vesuvius to the palaces of the emperors in various parts of the Roman Empire, from sprawling country mansions to the centres of agricultural estates, the range of these buildings is wide. In this series of illustrated lectures, we shall explore some of the most spectacular survivals, considering their architecture, decoration and furnishings together with the lifestyles of those that inhabited them, both the owners and their families and the slaves whose labour ensured their comfort and prosperity.
Enrolment for this course will open later in the year.
