Editorial Reviews

"This comprehensive volume of almost 600 pages deserves praise. Its 25 chapters have a chronological as well as a thematic focus, and cover the broader Roman Empire as well as specific case studies." (Bryn Mawr Classical Review, 1 March 2015)

"The Companion is an important study that opens up new avenues for discussion and consideration, challenges what is currently perceived to be the approved wisdom on Roman architecture and encourages a new approach to understanding the material culture of a society that remains evident and influential in our own."  (Reference Reviews, 1 October 2014)

"Summing Up: Recommended.  Lower-division undergraduates through graduate students."  (Choice, 1 June 2013)
"The line-up of contributers is extremley impressive, with most chapters written by the very scolors whose names immediately sprang to my own mind on seeing their titles" (The Journal of Roman Studies, May 2016)
