Evacuations at Carthage, The British Mission
Volume II, 2
The Circular Harbour, North Side
British Academy Monographs in Archaeology No. 5
This Volume publishes the main findings, including the remains of the dry docks for the Carthaginian navy. The focus is mainly on the Roman-Byzantine periods: for the first time ever, the probable remains of an imperial clothworks or gynaeceum have been revealed. The book is also an exercise in archaeological method. Substantial space is devoted to discussions, including ambitious reconstructions of the use of space, attempts to set the discoveries in a wider context, and critical looks at the methodology and argumentation used in this type of urban archaeology, which has been characteristic of British work over the last 25 years.
Very good condition. The dust jacket is good condition, with a small tear at the top right-hand corner, and slight bumping to the edges.
