Product description


'Via dell'Abbondanza is THE iconic road of Pompeii, trudged by generations of tourists and researchers. This book captures the road as never before, both by meticulous documentation, and by enthusiasm and empathy for what a road can offer. The photogrammetric reconstruction of facades in Pompeii takes not only the accuracy, but the aesthetic pleasure of documentation of the Roman city to a new level. 'This book is a major addition to our understanding of Pompeii.' Professor Andrew Wallace-Hadrill, University of Cambridge 'This book presents a unification of two components: an emotional one encompassing careful and innovative documentation of the original facades of the ancient buildings, and a scientific one involving advanced surveying technology, the results of which may be of interest to archaeologists, architects, restorers, and students of antiquity.' Professor Pietro Giovanni Guzzo, Archaeological Superintendent of Naples and Pompeii (1995-2009)

About the Author

Jennifer Stephens and Arthur Stephens are archaeological photographers. They record archaeological sites, excavations, post-excavation activities, artifacts, and historical documents for archaeologists and archaeological projects in Italy and Greece. In addition, Jennifer edits and creates images for publications and exhibitions and Arthur provides plans and diagrams. They have developed their own equipment and techniques to accurately record historical standing structures in a nondestructive manner and have worked as a team to create the photomosaics and supporting materials in this book. Their photomosaics and photographs have been included in archaeological books and monographs; academic papers and journals such as Hesperia, The New Griffon and The Sarawak Museum Journal; museum catalogues; and periodicals including Archaeology Magazine, Current World Archaeology, World Monuments ICON, Smithsonian Magazine and The New York Times. Their work has been displayed in conjunction with exhibits at museums across the world.
