"Roman Mosaics of Britain" by David S Neal and Stephen R Cosh

Neal and Cosh's complete corpus of Roman mosaics in Britain has been in
preparation for over a decade. Arranged alphabetically by county and site,
it lists and describes every known mosaic. All significant mosaics are
illustrated, many with the acclaimed tessera-by-tessera colour paintings by
the authors.

The corpus is divided into four volumes. The first, 'Northern Britain'
(incorporating the Midlands and East Anglia), is scheduled for publication
in late 2001/ early 2002. It contains over 350 illustrations, half in
colour, including 100 original paintings. The counties covered in this
volume are: Cambridgeshire, Leicestershire & Rutland, Lincolnshire, Norfolk,
Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Suffolk, Warwickshire and
Yorkshire.

As well as describing and illustrating the mosaics, this first volume, like
the rest of the corpus, deals fully with context and evidence: there are
accounts of the excavations, photographs of all figured mosaics,
reproductions of early engravings and detailed plans of villas. 

The three remaining volumes will appear at roughly yearly intervals: Volume
II (South-west Britain), Volume III (South-east Britain including London)
and Volume IV (Western Britain, including Wales).

All volumes will be in a standard format of 240x305mm, printed on 150gsm
matt art paper with full colour throughout, and bound in cloth boards. Each
volume is expected to retail for around 150, although there may be a
pre-publication discount.
