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.
