The Roman Mosaics of Britain

ASPROM has been instrumental in producing a comprehensive record of all the Roman mosaics ever found in Britain, The Roman Mosaics of Britain by David S. Neal and Stephen R. Cosh. The fourth and final volume of the Corpus was published in 2010 by the Society of Antiquaries. Read more about this monumental project.

AIEMA publications

ASPROM also contributes to the international publications produced by our parent organisation AIEMA (L'Association International pour l'Étude de la Mosaïque Antique). AIEMA publishes a regular Bulletin containing comprehensive bibliographic listings relating to mosaics in the ancient and medieval worlds, compiled from information supplied by AIEMA members all over the world. Many members of ASPROM have also contributed to the series of international mosaic congresses organised and published by AIEMA.
