I am fascinated about Roman civilization. I've been to Rome. This is to put a picture with my Roman memories.

Lanciani's book is a must have for anyone wanting to understand ancient Rome while they mosey through it's many sights. Pop it in your travel bag with any modern guide. Not only does he give you the history of the sights, but he also explains their fate at the hands of "modern" pillagers. There is the ancient Septizonium, for example, which once sat at the foot of the Palatine and welcomed travelers of the Appian Way to Rome. It was dismembered, not by German barbarians, but by Popes and Princes who wanted its bricks and marbles. Lanciani gives the current locations of those stones at the Piazza del Popolo and Lateran Palace.

Read any scholarly book on the ruins of Rome and you will find multiple citations of this author. He is one of the most respected archaeologists of Rome, and he oversaw much of the excavation of the ruins we now enjoy. From baths to aqueducts to cloacae to circuses you will find his explanation of ruins that even the best current guidebooks miss. Ever wonder what was in those empty niches at the base of the Campidoglio? I did. Lanciana explains them. Every time I go to Rome, and I've been there seven times, I find something in Lanciani that I missed, which makes me want to go back. I f you like Sherlock Holmes, a fictional detective, you will enjoy Lanciani's diligence and brilliance at unravelllng history from seemingly insignificant fragments of stone and statue.

My only negative on the book is that Lanciani does not always give enough details on locations. That is made worse by the fact that some names have changed during the 125 years since the book was written. When that happens I can usually figure it out by comparing the information to maps on current guide books. On the plus side, Lanciani's descriptions give you the raw excavations as they came to light and before they were made touristy or covered by modern disasters like the Via dei Fori Imperiali. This book is a must have for anyone who wants to really appreciate the marvels produced at the heights of the Roman empire and the tragedy of its decline that led to the destruction of so much that can not be brought back.

If you have ever wondered what happened to transform the stupendous marble temples, palaces and baths of Imperial Rome into the fragmentary ruins we see today, read Lanciani. A famous archaeologist, he takes the reader on a learned tour of most of the great and some of the virtually unknown sites of the ancient city and lets us know how emperors, popes, renaissance architects and modern speculators reduced them to their present state . While some of his information is no longer completely accurate due to more recent discoveries and scholarship, nonetheless, his first hand experience of the excavations and his extraordinary knowledge of the history of the city and its monuments make this essential reading for the enthusiastic tourist as well as the student. His descriptions of the many imperial gardens are fascinating and unavailable elsewhere. The volume has murky plates and illustrations, although many readers will not mind this; there are plenty of photos available in other books. One thing that most readers will miss is a map of the city showing the sites the author describes. Highly recommended.
