Bath constructions are today among other monuments one of the better preserved and studied monuments of the Roman Empire. Nevertheless, there remains a significant research gap as to the nature of water exploited within. The mineral-medicinal waters, in fact, conditioned not only the location, but also the function and, consequently, the architectu...

Article
In spite of the great leap forward experienced in our understanding of the use of marble and other ornamental stones in Roman Spain, provenance studies are still quite uncommon in some territories of the Iberian Peninsula. This was the case of the northwesternmost part (modern Galicia), where no significant work had been done until now. Within the...

Within the framework of an multidisciplinary study aiming to understand the use of marble in the northwest of Roman Spain, a relatively large number of the marble objects (sculpture, architectural elements, revetments) located in the territory turned out to be in pre-Romanesque churches or, in the case of sarcophagi, subsequently reused. Moreover,...

A wide number of archaeological discoveries have been made in the Roman healing Spa of Lugo, located at the foot of the city, which has been modernised and can be visited nowadays. However, one of the least well-known aspects of this Roman building is the complex medicinal mineral water supply system, as it has been reused over time. To solve this...
