Rome in the Pyrenees
Lugdunum and the Convenae from the first century B.C. to the seventh century A.D.
Written by an acknowledged authority on this period and region, this is the first full-length book published in English on a Roman-Gallic town.
Drawing from the extensive excavation that he has carried out on the site for many years, Simon Esmonde-Cleary presents this historical and archaeological survey of the important Roman and medieval site of St Bertrand de Comminges, or Lugdunum Convenarum, which was a great meeting place of routes in antiquity and stretches along the Pyrenees in the Gascony region between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic.
Specifically including a chapter on visiting Comminges in the present day, a part of southern France that is a popular holiday destination, Rome in thePyrenees will be invaluable reading to students and scholars of Roman provincial studies and Roman urbanism.
