    Review quote
    "This is by far the best book on ancient architecture written in the last few decades, suitable both for those who think they know the field, and for those who are looking for an introduction to Roman architecture. If I was a dictator this would be a set text for an archaeology or art history course - there are insufficient synonyms of the word 'brilliant' to describe it." Dorothy King, Minerva; "A careful, sensible, and delightful consideration of all aspects of building in ancient Rome that will provide new insights for young and old scholars alike." Carol Richardson, Art Book; "Wilson Jones's excellent work combines the knowledge of a practising architect with that of an architectural historian." Choice; "This is an important work which throws new light on a number of aspects of Roman construction. It is well illustrated by the author's own drawings, by reproductions from classical works on the subject, and by excellent colour photographs." Architectural Science Review
