The Roman House in Britain

Front Cover
Springer Science & Business Media, 2002 - Architecture - 272 pages

This authoritative and original work sets the results of recent archaeological research in the context of classical scholarship, as it explores three main aspects of Romano-British buildings:

* general characteristics of form and structure
* the ways in which they were built and decorated
* the range of activities for which they were designed.

This evidence is then used to discuss the social practices and domestic arrangements that characterised Romano-British elite society. Fully illustrated, this volume is the essential guide to how houses were built, used and understood in Roman Britain.
