Lancaster (classics, Ohio U.) examines the methods and techniques that enabled builders to construct some of the most imposing monuments of ancient Rome. Focusing on structurally innovative vaulting and the factors that influenced its advancement, Lancaster explores a range of practices. She provides the geological background of the local building stones and applies mineralogical analysis to determine material provenance. To draw connections between changes in the building industry and the events that shaped Roman society, Lancaster examines construction techniques in relation to the social, economic and political contexts of Rome.
