Roman architecture is extraordinarily rich, both in terms of the techniques and materials used and in the variety of buildings constructed, many of which are still visible today. Now in paperback,Roman Buildingsplaces emphasis on the technical aspects of that architecture, following the process of building through each stage, from quarry to standing wall, from tree to roof timbers. The author examines the different techniques involved in building in brick and in stone and wood, and how these materials were obtained or manufactured. He also discusses interior decoration and looks at the practical aspects of water supply, heating and roads. Each type of building required special tools and these are described, using both surviving examples and modern parallels. The Romans constructed many spectacular feats of engineering, producing magnificent monuments such as the Pantheon and Pont du Gard. This book looks at these large-scale public buildings but also at more modest homes and shops. The resultis a thorough and systematic examination of Roman building, with over 750 illustrations, including the author's own drawings.Roman Buildingscontains a foreword by Professor Michael Fulford.

Well the main reason why I wrote this book is because I have been into Science Fiction all of my life. I have always had a creative imagination. For years I have had ideals for a great story but never did anything about it. Several years ago I decided that I was going to do something about it. I opened a word document and began writing my novel. A few years later I had 200 pages completed and a interesting story. I am single male with no children or wife. I live in Southfield, Mi.I was born an raise in Inkster Michigan.
