Terrace House 2 in Ephesus
 
Ephesus in modern day Turkey is one of the oldest and largest cities of antiquity. Within the ancient city center is Terrace House 2, the modern name given to an exceptionally well-preserved group of Roman residences. They are regarded amongst the most remarkable of its type and an almost inexhaustible resource for studying the material culture and domestic architecture of the period. Archaeologist Sabine Ladstätter shares important new discoveries from the site and compares these buildings to others from around the Mediterranean. Co-presented with the Archaeological Institute of America and the Samuel H. Kress Foundation.
