Domesticating Empire

Egyptian Landscapes in Pompeian Gardens

Caitlín Eilís Barrett

  • Proposes a new interpretation of the functions and meanings of "Nilotic scenes" and "Aegyptiaca" in Roman visual culture
  • Offers innovative applications of contemporary sociological, anthropological, and archaeological theory to material more often studied from a culture-historical perspective
  • Contextualizes Egyptian or Egyptian-style material culture from Roman domestic settings, specifically "Aegyptiaca" from Roman households.
