This is a Macaulay book about the founding and development of a roman city around the time of the first millennium and the techniques and tools they used to arrange the city and the engineering problems and solutions that were traditionally foreseen and addressed. It doesn’t shy away from traditions and roman cultural touchstones which might have been seen in a frontier city of the roman empire that really helps to immerse the reader in the story, shallow though it is, of this city; which, helps to really highlight the similarities of the technique used by the roman architects and engineers when we see how different their society was.
