ROMAN ARCHITECTURE WEB SITES

5 Maecemas: Images of Ancient Rome
This is a very nice site, full of pictures from all over the Roman Empire. They are organized very cleverly: first by country, and then clicking on an architectural site name takes you to a new page with a list of pictures of that structure. Another great thing about it is that it's set up so that no page takes a long time to load -- so you can easily access exactly what you want in a short amount of time. Also, the pictures themselves are very good; most of the images on my site are from this one, by Leo C. Curran.
