Description

This volume explores the organization and contents of five houses at Halieis. It is based on the structure of each house and its contents and includes detailed room-by-room analyses of the excavated finds. From this it expands into a general consideration of the Greek household and domestic economy, topics of growing interest among archaeologists. In particular, it considers division of labor within the household and the allocation of domestic space for men and women.

Reviews

“A study of domestic spaces at an ancient Greek site that expands into a general consideration of the Greek household and domestic economy, topics of growing interest among archaeologists. In particular, the book considers division of labor within the household and the allocation of domestic space for men and women. ”

“Describes the development of the fortification system at Halieis, from simple earthwork defenses to massive walls with towers and gates. The increasingly complex defenses are the city’s response to aggression and new developments in siege warfare. ”
