Roman architecture was influenced by the Greeks and so there were many similarities such as the use of arches, columns and pillars. There is not very much difference for example, between Roman and Greek temples.

In Ancient Roman towns and cities streets were narrow and space was limited therefore houses tended to be small. Buildings were a variety of shapes and sizes, including apartment blocks.

There were attempts at structural regulation, including a height limit and a minimum space between buildings. It also became mandatory for a flat roofed portico across the fa£ade of adjacent buildings, to facilitate fire fighting.

A popular feature was the atrium, a reception room with its own roof which sloped inwards and had a central opening. It channelled rainwater which was collected and used in the household.

Greek cities were renowned for their public buildings, altars and temples. Houses were usually built around a courtyard; any windows on the outer walls of the house tending to be small and able to be closed with shutters.

Note: measurements are approximate.

The Military Harbour at Carthage
comprised a central circular ship shed surrounded by an outer ring of ship sheds. Our model is based on the design of this famous harbour, but offered as individual items. For example, the outer ring has been constructed in 4 parts so that a section (RA138/139) would make a curved ship shed in any other harbour.

The complete model of the Military Harbour at Carthage would require::
4 x RA138/139 .
1 x RA140/141
1 x MA1 (the admiral's headquarters)
