Start course

Kleiner, Diana E. E., HSAR 252 Roman Architecture,Spring 2009. Yale Open Course Ware: History of Art, Accessed 1/10/14, http://oyc.yale.edu/history-art/hsar-252/lecture-4 License: Creative Commons BY-NC-SA Professor Kleiner explores the civic, commercial, and religious buildings of Pompeii, an overview made possible only because of an historical happenstance--the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in A.D. 79, which buried the city at the height of its development. While the lecture features the resort town's public architecture--its forum, basilica, temples, amphitheater, theater, and bath complexes--Professor Kleiner also describes such fixtures of daily life as a bakery and a fast food restaurant.
