Description - The Roman House in Britain by Dominic Perring
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. The author also looks to the ancient world at large, to see if there are similarities or contrasts which can illuminate Romano-British findings. Fully illustrated, this volume is the essential guide to how houses were built, used and understood in Roman Britain.
