About the Author

Paul Roberts is a curator of Roman antiquities at the British Museum. He is the author of a number of books and has contributed to volumes about the mummy portraits of Roman Egypt. He also lectures on the subject. He helped to research and organise the 1997 Ancient Faces exhibition at the British Museum.


With such a short life, the worlds stock of Roman cameo glass is not large; most of it consists of fragments, and most is held in a small number of collections in Europe and North America. The British Museum has one of the best collections - seventy pieces in all, including what is arguable the finest piece of all, the Portland Vase, an exquisite object whose complex ownership history and multiple influences on European culture (on Wedgwood pottery, for a start) deserves an entire book in its own right. As it is, this book does justice to the vase in the context of the wider theme, summing up all we currently know about cameo glass production and cataloguing the examples that survive in the BM.' -- SALON - The Society of Antiquaries Online Newslett SALON - The Society of Antiquaries Online Newslett
