In this fully updated new edition, Frank Sear offers a thorough overview of the history of architecture in the Roman Empire.

Arranged logically in six historical sections interspersed with material on Roman architects and their techniques, the building types found in Roman cities and the different buildings found in the Roman provinces, this volume now contains the latest insights into Roman architecture and takes account of the last 20 years of scholarship. This seminal work covers the architecture of the Republic, Age of Augustus, the eastern and western empire, Roman North Africa, and the Late Antique period, exploring subjects such as patronage, building techniques and materials, Roman engineering, town planning, and imperial propaganda in a concise and readable way.

Illustrated with nearly 300 photographs, maps and drawings, Roman Architecture continues to be the clearest introductory account of the development of architecture in the Roman Empire.
