Joann Freed
Published at $75.00 $9.95 (Save $65.05)

The British Museum houses a group of figured mosaic pavements, most of which were excavated between 1856 and 1859 at Carthage by dilettante Nathan Davis--work that was funded by the Foreign Office of the British Government. This volume recounts the story behind this pioneering enterprise, and the rivalry of colonial powers as they explored the ruins of the ancient city. Import. Illustrated, some color.
