Excavations at Chester - The Elliptical Building: An Image of the Roman World? - Excavations in 1939 and 1963-9

£24.99

Product description

1st edition
Very good condition with some signs of shelf wear and fold to front cover
Since it first came to light in 1939, the 'Elliptical Building' has been one of the great mysteries of Roman Chester. In this definitive structural report David Mason analyses the results of all the excavations on the site. He presents for the first time detailed information on the building and its neighbouring bath house, as well as tantalising hints of pre-fortress Roman occupation. His interpretation of the Elliptical Building as an abortive Flavian imperial shrine and exhibition leads on to a re-assessment of the intended role of the Chester fortress.
