The book aims to situate households within a wider framework of their place in their social environments. As such, it is the only introductory text thus far to offer archaeological, historical, and anthropological interpretations of domestic spaces and cultural identity in both the Greek and Roman worlds. Due to the fragmentary nature of the archaeological evidence, it is difficult to distinguish between industrial, commercial and domestic spaces.

In cities like Athens, which forms the focus of the majority of surviving textual sources from the Classical period, there was a need to restrict certain interior spaces to outsiders. Sympotic activities, N.
Furthermore, the author states that the domestic symposion suggests that Greek culture was not necessarily polarized between the civic arena of the male citizens and the domestic sphere which was more associated with females. Here, her argument would have been enhanced by a section on houses from Crete, where the communal social structure encouraged dining in public andreia rather than private spaces and did not necessitate the presence of domestic symposia, thus diverging from the general model found in most other Greek areas.

Domestic Space in Classical Antiquity
Toggle navigation. New to eBooks. Domestic Space in Classical Antiquity. 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.
