The Forum of Trajan in Rome

Review pending at Tekka. A fascinating study of Trajan's great public building complex -- its construction, eventual disappearance, and gradual rediscovery. The centerpiece of this work is a detailed and thorough computer reconstruction of the forum and its buildings, a marvelous combination of jigsaw puzzle-solving and architectural reasoning.
