AAMW629 - ROMAN ARCH & URBANISM

In addition to the sense of human catastrophe, the ruins of the ancient cities Pompeii and Herculaneum provide insights into the cultural, social, and political life of Italian cities during Roman times (2nd century B.C.E. 79 C.E.). The architecture and decorations of their public buildings, spaces, and houses, and the changes observable in them, can be considered characteristic of Roman cities in general. Burial by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 also provides a unique glimpse of events that occurred at one specific moment in time. Reception of these lost cities and of their arts in particular reverberates in modern society.
