Abstract

LIBRI AD MNEMOSYNEN MISSI I AN M. B ARTON (Ed.), Roman Domestic Buildings . Exeter, University of Exeter Press, 1996. xv, 194 p., 74 fig., 30 pls., 4 maps. Pr. £ 10.95. This book provides a sound introduction into the study of various forms of liv- ing in both the Roman city and the countryside. The editor acknowledges that this volume predominantly deals with the dwellings of the elite, rather than with those of the lower classes and the poor. The reason for this is simply and understandably the abundance of remains and literary sources concerning the first category. Although the six chapters do not attempt to break new grounds, they are clearly based on profound knowledge and experience in the field of Roman housing. We may compliment both editor and authors on the lucid presentation of the topic. E.J. Owens presents the setting of domestic building within urbanistic planning and discusses the main topics of urbanism and house building from the later repub- lic to the second and third centuries AD in Northern Africa.
