Architectural Restoration and Heritage in Imperial Rome

Christopher Siwicki

Oxford Studies in Ancient Culture & Representation

  • Presents the first monograph-length study on the subject of architectural restoration in ancient Rome, shedding new light on how the Romans engaged with, perceived, and represented material elements of the past
  • Challenges the idea that heritage is a purely modern phenomenon by explicitly applying the framework of heritage to ancient built environments
  • Examines not only the way in which the buildings and urban fabric of Rome physically developed, but also how inhabitants of the city responded to these changes
