A 22 page guide especially written people who want to know more about Roman floor mosaics.
If you have ever visited a museum or archaeological site that has had Roman mosaics and wanted to to learn more then this guide is for you. I have written this after 14 years of making copies of Roman mosaics so you can rely on the information.
The sections take you through all the main subjects including;
A timeline to show the history from 5th BCE - 6th CE
How were they made?
Who made them?
How did they cut the marble?
Two guides to geometric patterns which allow you to indentify them in seconds (both methods are exclusive to this workshop).
Figure mosaics, why did they have certain scenes?
The Rules, something you will see in every Roman mosaic yet almost nowhere will you see them explained.
The guide contains 22 pages with 10 colour photos and 16 drawings.
