Editorial Reviews


"Scholarly study of Greek houses, their plans, patterns of organization, functions, and prestige." Stanely Abercrombie, Interior Design

"...welcome volume...stimulating study" David W. J. Gill, University of Wales Swansea, UK

"She does an excellent job of establishing a theoretical framework within which she does a close analysis of some of the material from Olynthos...This is a fine treatment of a difficult subject. Recommended for undergraduate and graduate libraries." Religious Studies Review

"...a source of clarification and wise balance..." Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians

Book Description

This book considers traditional assumptions about the nature of social relationships in Greek households during the Classical and Hellenistic periods, which draws on archaeological evidence from individual houses rather than textual sources. The focus of the study is the domestic organisation of households, particularly the relationships between men and women within the households, between household members and outsiders, and with the wider social structures of the polis or city state, and how these changed with time.
