  • A collection of research into the Roman Emperor Hadrian.

    Hadrian: Art, Politics and Economy presents new research by leading scholars on one of the most important Roman Emperors, covering a wide range of aspects of Hadrian's life and reign, including recent finds and their subsequent history and reception.

    The papers collected here comment on a variety of topics including architecture, sculpture and numismatics concerning the Roman Empire as a whole, from Britain and Spain in the West to Turkey and Georgia in the East.

    This book is a publication of the proceedings of the 2009 conference relating to the 2008 British Museum exhibition, Hadrian: Empire and Conflict.


    Thorsten Opper is a curator of Greek and Roman sculpture at the British Museum and the author of Hadrian: Empire and Conflict.
