In this episode, Zofia is joined by archaeologist and 3D-reconstruction specialist, Dr Lucia Michielin, to shine a light on her research into how the building practices of Romans considered lighting and its implications on home design.
We discuss changes to Roman technology and how increased accessibility to glass in the Imperial period was reflected in Roman homes, and how she navigated using semi-fantastical artistic evidence and scientific analysis to explore domestic lighting in the Roman world.
Tangents include: Disney castles, video games, living the ‘Roman Dream’ and gated communities, and public engagement.
