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.


'This is a fundamental book of enduring importance.' - Antiquity

'This book is a must for any student or professional archaeologist specialising in the study of the Roman house … a vital contribution to Romano-British studies.' - Minerva
