The Roman Provence Guide
by Edwin Mullins
- 224 PAGES
Edwin Mullins seeks out hidden traces of ancient Rome and the many spectacular monuments that today adorn the cities of Nimes, Arles, Vienne, and Orange. He tells the story of how the Romans came to invade Provence, how they stayed to colonize it, and how they transformed Provenal cities, including the story of the conversion of the Roman Empire to Christianity by Emperor Constantine from his favorite city of Arles -- and how the Romans were eventually driven out by the Visigoths. With chapters on various Roman achievements: triumphal arches, aqueducts, farming, city life, bridges and road-building, temples and shrines, theaters and amphitheaters.
