Editorial Reviews

British Archaeology
“The rich variety of buildings across the Roman Empire is cleverly explored by the authors, the similarities and the differences being equally fascinating . . . One fascinating element to emerge is the Romans' love of their gardens. How timeless seem some of the attempts to include garden space in densely populated urban areas.” –British Archaeology
Greece and Rome
“In format, price, and tone the book easily succeeds (like its forerunner companion, Roman Public Buildings) in divulging a great deal of information in accessible terms.” –Greece and Rome, 44.2 (October 1997)
JACT Review
“ . . . deals with topics that are important for any teacher of Latin or Classical Civilisation, while its scale and clarity of organization make it accessible to sixth-formers.” –JACT Review, Summer 1998
Mnemosyne
“A book that can serve excellently as an introduction to the studies of Roman private houses, either for undergraduate students in archaeology or for general readers with an interest in ancient culture. The authors succeed in transmitting important information concerning the way of living in countryside and town, not only in Italy but also in the remote regions of the empire.” –Mnemosyne, Vol. LII, 1999
The Classical Review
“. . . a useful starting place. Unfamiliar words are collected in a glossary, and notes to each chapter provide references to some of the more specialist works. An index of sites serves as a guide to finding discussion of them in the text and to their location on four maps. The text is amplified by black and white plates and a generous number of line drawings, the latter generally placed conveniently close to the discussion. A guide to further reading is also included . . .” –The Classical Review, Vol. XLVIII, No. 1, 1998
