Title is Backordered


This book covers the development of mosaics in Britain from the invasion to the end of Roman Britain. The technical side of the art form is covered as well as prefabrication. It covers mosaics in towns and rural locations. Many of the mosaics have been lost but are recorded in colored engravings. Included is a pictorial glossary of the mythological creatures found on mosaics and sections relating the myths that are depicted on them. Reconstructions by the author of some sections of figured mosaics based on examples found elsewhere in the empire are included. The author's recent work on the newly discovered Boxford mosaic, the most important mosaic found in Britain for over 50 years, is explored here for the first time.
