Seeking to expand both the geographical range and the diversity
of sites considered in the study of ancient Greek housing,
Ancient Greek Houses and Households takes readers beyond
well-established studies of the ideal classical house and
now-famous structures of Athens and Olynthos.
Bradley A. Ault and Lisa C. Nevett have brought together an
international team of scholars who draw upon recent approaches to
the study of households developed in the fields of classical
archaeology, ancient history, and anthropology. The essays cover a
broad range of chronological, geographical, and social contexts and
address such topics as the structure and variety of households in
ancient Greece, facets of domestic industry, regional diversity in
domestic organization, and status distinctions as manifested within
Ancient Greek Houses and Households views both Greek
houses and the archeological debris found within them as a means of
investigating the basic unit of Greek society: the household.
Through this approach, the essays successfully point the way toward
a real integration between material and textual data, between
archeology and history.
