The Sites of Rome

Book Description: 

The Sites of Rome: Time, Space, Memory, co-edited by David Larmour and Diana Spencer (Oxford University Press, 2007) offers glimpses, sideways glances and unexpected angles that open up Rome in its widest possible sense, and explores how the visible components of Rome - the hills, the Tiber, the temples, the Forums, the Colosseum, the statues and monuments - operate as, or become, the sites/sights of Rome.
