Description

This volume contains a range of papers from a seminar held in Oxford in 2005. What did ‘art’ in its widest sense mean to ‘them’, the Romans, and what might it (or even should it, mean to us? The approach adopted avoids fashionable ‘theory’, mainly culledsecond-hand from the social sciences, and tries to engage directly with material culture.
