Roman North Africa

E Lennox Manton.  Published by B A Seaby, London.  HB  1988  144 pages.  Dark blue cloth with gilt spine. Illustrated throughout with numerous b/w and colour photographs, maps and plans. 182 x 246mm. ISBN 1852640073   Virtually as new. Pictorial d/w.  Ex libris of J S Vogelaar on ffep.


Begins with the story of the Carthaginians and their struggle against Rome. The book then describes the transformation of North Africa into a wealthy Roman province and how the wide-ranging influence of emperors such as Hadrian and Septimius Severus led to the development of military and agricultural towns and cities built in the Roman style, together with an efficient network of roads, many still the basis of modern roads in the area. The geographical range of the book extends from Mauretania to Cyrenaica, with detailed descriptions of all the major sites, including such highlights as Leptis Magna, Sabratha, Timgad, El Djem and Volubilis.
