Rome, Art & Emperors: The Golden Age of Rome, By Dr. Paul Roberts


Dec 4, 2024


La Senieta, Moraira (11am) and Casa de Cultura, Javea (7:30pm)


Rome’s art and architecture were some of the finest of man’s creations.  In this talk, Dr. Roberts presents beautiful works of art - sculpture, mosaic, wall-paintings, silver and jewellery - to trace the history of this mighty city.  The talk focuses on Rome’s golden age – from 30 BC to AD 200, when Emperors such as Augustus, Nero and Hadrian reigned, and filled the city with palaces, temples, theatres, libraries and other incredible monuments.


Dr Paul Roberts is Head of the Department of Antiquities at the Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology, Oxford University. Paul has been a lecturer with the Arts Society for over twenty years, has travelled extensively to societies across the UK, and has also lectured on numerous cruises in and around the Mediterranean. He studied Classics at the University of Cambridge, and Classical Archaeology at the Universities of Sheffield and Oxford. He then lived in Italy for several years, teaching and researching. He has travelled throughout the former lands of the Roman Empire, from Britain to Syria, and has excavated in Britain, Greece, Libya, Turkey and in particular Italy, where he is currently working on a Roman Villa in the Molise region of the Central Apennines.
