The Alyscamps is a large Roman necropolis a short distance outside the
walls of the old town of Arles, France. It was one of the most famous
necropolises of the ancient world. The name is a corruption of the Latin
Elisii Campi, or Elysian Fields.
The Amphithetre
The name amphitheatre is given to a public building of the Classical
period (being particularly associated with ancient Rome) which
was used for spectator sports, games and displays.
Apart from function, the important outward distinction between an
amphitheatre and a theatre is that an amphitheatre is round or oval
in shape (whereas a classical theatre was semi-circular).
However, an amphitheatre differs from a circus, which was used for
racing and looked more like a very long, narrow horse shoe.
The best-known amphitheatre in the world is the Colosseum in Rome

Roman aqueducts were extremely sophisticated constructions. They were
built to remarkably fine tolerances, and of a technological standard that
had a gradient of only 34 cm per km (1:3,000), descending only 17 m
vertically in its entire length of 31 miles (50 km). Powered entirely by
gravity, they transported very large amounts of water very efficiently (the
Pont du Gard carried 20,000 cubic meters {nearly 6 million gallons} a day
and the combined aqueducts of the city of Rome supplied around 1
million cubic meters (300 million gallons) a day.

Etruscan kings of Rome.

Julius Caesar expanded the Circus around 50 BC, after which the
track measured approximately 600 metres in length, 225 metres in
breadth and could accommodate an estimated 250,000 seated
The most important event at the Circus was chariot racing. The
track could hold 12 chariots

starting gates, or carceres, which staggered the chariots so that
each travelled the same distance to the first turn.
In Roman architecture, insulae were large apartment buildings
where the lower and middle classes of Romans (the plebs) dwelled.
The floor at ground level was used for, shops and businesses with
living space on the higher floors.
Private houses were therefore a luxury only the wealthy could
afford. This led a majority of the inhabitants of the inner city to live in
apartment and tenement housing called insulae.
A single insulae could acomodate over 40 people in only 400
square meters
Because of the dangers of fire, and collapse, the height of the
insulae were restricted by Emperor Augustus to 70 feet, and again
by Emperor Nero down to 60 feet after the Great fire of Rome.
There may have been up to 50,000 insulaes, as compared to only
2000 domus in the late 200 A.D, when the city was in decline, and
the population was smaller.
Unlike upperclass homes, most insulae did not have running water
or sanitation, with the inhabitants relying on public toilets and

Ancient Roman lighthouses
Lighthouses in ancient times
Before the development of clearly defined ports, mariners were
guided by fires built on hilltops.
Since raising the fire would improve the visibility, placing the fire on
a platform became a practice that led to the development of the
lighthouse. In antiquity, the lighthouse functioned more as an
entrance marker to ports than as a warning signal for reefs and
promontories, unlike many modern lighthouses.

between Scotland and England, although for most of its length the wall
follows a line well south of the modern border
The wall was the northern border of the Empire in Britain for most of the
Roman Empire's rule, and also the most heavily fortified border in the
Empire. In addition to its use as a military fortification, it is thought that
the gates through the wall would also have served as customs posts to
allow trade taxation.

since it was part of the daily regimen for men of all classes, and

or in their country villas, heating a series of rooms or even a
separate building especially for this purpose, they still often

frequented the numerous public bathhouses in the cities and towns
throughout the empire.
Small bathhouses, called balneum, might be privately owned, but
they were public in the sense that they were open to the populace
for a fee.
The large baths, called thermae, were owned by the state and
often covered several city blocks.
The largest of these, the Baths of Diocletian, could hold up to 3,000
bathers. Fees for both types of baths were quite reasonable, within
the budget of most free Roman males.
Since the Roman workday began at sunrise, work was usually over
a little after noon. Around three in the afternoon, men would go to
the baths and stay for several hours of sport, bathing, and
conversation, after which they would be ready for a relaxing dinner.
Republican bathhouses often had separate bathing facilities for
women and men, but by the time of the empire the custom was to
open the bathhouses to women during the early part of the day
and reserve it for men from two in the afternoon until closing time.
Which was usually Certainly women who were concerned about
their respectability did not frequent the baths when the men were
there, but of course the baths were an excellent place for
prostitutes to work.

A triumphal arch is a structure in the shape of a monumental archway,
usually built to celebrate a victory in war.
The arch is invariably a free-standing structure, quite separate from
city gates or walls.
In its simplest form a triumphal arch consists of two pillars connected
by an arch, crowned with a superstructure or attic on which a statue
might be mounted or which bears commemorative inscriptions.
More elaborate triumphal arches have more than one archway,
typically three or five of varying sizes.
Byzantine architecture is the architecture of the Byzantine Empire. The
empire emerged gradually after AD 330, when Constantine moved the
capital of the Roman Empire to Byzantium, which was later renamed
Constantinople and is now Istanbul.
Early architecture
Prime examples of early Byzantine architecture date from Justinian I's reign
and survive in Ravenna and Constantinople. One of the great
breakthroughs in the history of Western architecture occurred when
Justinian's architects invented a complex system providing for a smooth
transition from a square plan of the church to a circular dome (or domes)
by means of squinches or pendentives.
In Ravenna, we have the longitudinal basilicas of San Vitale and S
Apollinare Nuovo, among others. Justinian's monuments in Constantinople
include the domed churches of Hagia Sophia and Hagia Irene, but there
is also an earlier, smaller church of Sts Sergius and Bacchus (sometimes
referred to as "Little Hagia Sophia"), which might have served as a model
for both in that it combined the elements of a longitudinal basilica with
those of a centralized building.

Secular structures include the ruins of the Great Palace of Constantinople,
the innovative walls of Constantinople (with 192 towers) and Basilica
Cistern (with hundreds of recycled classical columns). A frieze in the
Ostrogothic palace in Ravenna depicts an early Byzantine palace.
Hagios Demetrios in Thessaloniki, St Catherine Monastery on Mount Sinai,
Djvari in present-day Georgia, and three Armenian churches of
Echmiadzin all date primarily from the 7th century and provide a glimpse
on architectural developments in the Byzantine provinces following the
age of Justinian.
Middle period
The Middle period of Byzantine history didn't see any ambitious
architectural undertakings. From the years of Iconoclasm we have only
the Church of Hagia Sophia, Thessaloniki. Another major building, the
Assumption church in Nicaea, was destroyed in the 1920s, although the
photographs survive.
The period of the Macedonian dynasty, traditionally considered the
epitome of Byzantine art, has not left a lasting legacy in architecture. It is
presumed that Basil I's votive church of the Theotokos of Phoros (not
longer extant) served as a model for most cross-in-square sanctuaries of
the period, including the monastery church of Hosios Lukas in Greece (ca.

1000), Nea Moni Katholikon in Chios (a pet project of Constantine IX), and
the Daphnion near Athens (ca. 1050).
Comnenan and Paleologan periods
In Constantinople and Asia Minor the architecture of the Comnenan
period is almost non-existant, with the notable exception of the Elmali
Kilise and other rock sanctuaries of Cappadocia. Much architecture
survives on the outskirts of the Byzantine world, where the national forms of
architecture came into being: in the Transcaucasian countries, in Russia,
Bulgaria, Serbia, and other Slavic lands; and also in Sicily (Cappella
Palatina) and Veneto (St Mark's Basilica, Torcello Cathedral).
The Paleologan period is well-represented in a dozen churches of
Constantinople, notably St Saviour at Chora and St Mary Pammakaristos
(illustrated, to the right). Unlike their Slavic counterparts, the Paleologan
architects never accented the vertical thrust of structures. As a result,
there is little grandeur in the late medieval architecture of Byzantium
(barring the Hagia Sophia of Trapezunt).

The church of Holy Apostles in Thessaloniki is often cited as an archetypal
structure of the late period, when the exterior walls were intricately
decorated with complex brickwork patterns or with glazed ceramics.
Other churches from the years immediately predating the fall of
Constantinople survive on Mount Athos and in Mistra (e.g., Brontocheion
Structural evolution
As early as the building of Constantine's churches in Palestine there were
two chief types of plan in use: the basilican, or axial, type, represented by
the basilica at the Holy Sepulchre, and the circular, or central, type,
represented by the great octagonal church once at Antioch. Those of the
latter type we must suppose were nearly always vaulted, for a central
dome would seem to furnish their very raison d'etre. The central space
was sometimes surrounded by a very thick wall, in which deep recesses, to
the interior, were formed, as at the noble church of St George, Salonica
(5th century), or by a vaulted aisle, as at Sta Costanza, Rome (4th
century); or annexes were thrown out from the central space in such a
way as to form a cross, in which these additions helped to counterpoise
the central vault, as at the Mausoleum of Galla Placidia, Ravenna (5th

The most famous church of this type was that of the Holy Apostles,
Constantinople. Vaults appear to have been early applied to the
basilican type of plan; for instance, at Hagia Irene, Constantinople (6th
century), the long body of the church is covered by two domes.
Byzantine legacy
Ultimately, Byzantine architecture in the West gave way to Romanesque
and Gothic architecture. In the East it exerted a profound influence on
early Islamic architecture, with notable examples including the Umayyad
Great Mosque of Damascus and the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem,
which required Byzantine craftsmen and mosaicists to decorate. In Russia,
architecture persisted even longer, finally giving birth to local schools of
The Byzantine era properly defined came to an end with the fall of
Constantinople to the Ottoman Turks in 1453, but by this time the
Byzantine cultural heritage had been widely diffused, carried by the
spread of Orthodox Christianity, to Bulgaria, Serbia, Romania and, most
importantly, to Russia, which became the centre of the Orthodox world
following the Ottoman conquest of the Balkans. Even under Ottoman rule,
Byzantine traditions in icon-painting and other small-scale arts survived.
The influence of Byzantine art in western Europe, particularly Italy, was
seen in ecclesiastical architecture, through the development of the
Romanesque style in the 10th century and 11th centuries. This influence
was transmitted through the Frankish and Salic emperors, primarily
Charlemagne, who had close relations with Byzantium.
