May – Photo of the Month

From our recent trip to Bergama.  From the reconstructed house with the mosaics which is part way down the acropolis hill.  It is known as bina Z (building Z).   The house is fascinating, the reconstruction showing how it had been used and reused over time.  This is Roman, domestic material, but obviously from a very wealthy family.

  1. . . it’s nice when reconstructions are done in a sensitive way – really gives a feel for how it was/might have been. Mind you, after seeing the ghastly concrete repro at Knossos even a building site looks good!
