20th June 2013

Animals in Roman Life and Art

Centre Fellow the Reverend Professor Martin Henig has written an Introduction to J. M. C. Toynbee’s classic work on Animals in Roman Life and Art originally published in 1973.

Toynbee’s work has long been out of print and its republication has been much anticipated. Professor Henig in his Introduction writes of how the subject matter is of increasing importance given the rise of Animal Ethics as an academic discipline.

Professor Henig is Honorary Professor of Archaeology at University College, London, a former lecturer in Archaeology at the University of Oxford, and an international authority on Roman history.

The book is published by Pen and Sword Archaeology. Further details are here.

The book will be reviewed in a future issue of the Journal of Animal Ethics.
