Domestic Space in Classical Antiquity PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Domestic Space in Classical Antiquity free pdf Housing is shaped by culturally-specific expectations about the kinds of architecture and furnishings that are appropriate- about how and where different activities should be carried out- and by and with whom. It is those expectations, and the wider social and cultural systems of which they are a part, that are explored in this volume. At the same time, the book as a whole argues two larger points: first, that while houses, households and families have in recent years become increasingly important as objects of inquiry in Greek and Roman contexts, their potential as sources of information about broader social-historical issues has yet to be fully realised- and second, that greater weight and independence should be given to material culture as a source for studying ancient history. The book will be invaluable for upper-level undergraduates, graduate students and scholars.
