|Title:||Review: F.K. Yegül Bathing in the Roman World (2010) Cambridge: Cambridge University Press||Authors:||Kelly, Amanda||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/8021||Date:||14-Oct-2013||Abstract:||In his preface Fikret Yegül describes his book as a general, yet generous, review of bathing in the Roman world. His fnished product, however, exceeds all such stated parameters in terms of breadth of material, chronological span and sophistication of analysis. From the outset Y. launches into an energetic, informative, and clearly indulgent, social exploration of the habit of Roman bathing; a ritual which was, by nature, integrally harnessed to the architectural framework of the bathhouse.||Type of material:||Other||Publisher:||Cambridge University Press||Copyright (published version):||2013 the Authors||Keywords:||Roman culture;Baths;Bathing||DOI:||10.1017/S0075435813000403||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
