Houses and Society in Pompeii and Herculaneum Few sources reveal the life of the ancient Romans as vividly as do the houses preserved by the eruption of Vesuvius. Wealthy Romans lavished resources on shaping their surroundings to impress their crowds of visitors. This book explores the rich potential of the houses of Pompeii and Herculaneum to offer insights into Roman social life. Full description

Première phrase
That the quality and decoration of a Roman's house was closely linked with his social standing emerges again and again in the literature of the late Republic and early Empire. Lire la première page

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A fine piece of scholarship, but also an intriguing read 6 octobre 2003
Par Voracious Reader - Publié sur
Wallace-Hadrill's book begins with specific facts and shows how these lead to interesting questions. For example... because bed widths varied, and tended to be quite narrow, we can't be sure whether people slept alone or in pairs; in fact, we can't even be very certain how many people lived in a given household because we don't know about sleeping arrangements in detail (some slaves may have slept in or near the master's quarters, and not in separate slave quarters, for example). He points out that Roman houses had formal and informal areas, rather than the men's and women's quarters typical in earlier Greek homes, or the segregation by age that one might see in 19th century England, for example. These "dry" facts actually suggest quite a lot about how people interacted, and how the spaces in homes were used.
Of course, this isn't a novel... several recently published novels provide vivid descriptions of "what people did in those houses", complete with fictional characters (often based on people who actually lived in Pompeii). But Wallace-Hadrill's book is an extremely interesting read even though it is a work of scholarship, rather than something intended as entertainment. People who would like to have backgound information for a visit to Pompeii will find that this book helps them understand what they see when they visit. I found the floor plans, and the descriptions of use of space, really interesting: an upper class Roman house combined public and private space in ways that are quite different from modern American suburbs, but in some ways, rather like some modern Italian cities!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Discovery of Ancient Social Stucture. 5 juillet 2003
Par "eliselorenz" - Publié sur
This book makes me think. What was it like to live in ancient Pompeii? What did people actually do with those dramatic and imposing, architectural masterpieces called houses?
Wallace-Hadrill attempts to find some answers to these questions from the physical evidence coupled with literary reference and historical facts.
Trained as a biochemist, I enjoy Mr. Wallace-Hadrill's attention to detail, propensity to stick to the facts and willingness to say so when his investigations lead into blind alleys. There are many things about life in ancient Pompeii, which there is no way to know at this time. But there are others, which can be discovered, and they paint a picture of a rich and vibrant society very different from our own, and yet as closely related as a grandfather to a grandson.
This book is not a fast read. It is not a novel. It is not emotional in the common sense of the word. But it is wonderful.

This extraordinary book by Andrew Wallace-Hadrill was immediately recognized by many people as a landmark in the field of archaeology. For me personally, archaeology has not been the same since. What Wallace-Hadrill does is very simple. He merely points out what should have been obvious to us all a long time ago. It simply makes sense. Basically Wallace-Hadrill analyzes and interprets the living spaces of ancient people living on the Bay of Naples in AD 79. The Roman house was designed to make an impression. Through Wallace-Hadrill's analyses we can see these people as they wanted to present themselves, which tells us a great deal about the society itself. This is a revolutionary work. It's an absolute MUST for the serious student of archaeology. Five stars.

This is a dreary, pedantic and repetitious bore. The author repeats his theme in every chapter about 10 times. The pictures are not that interesting and not very good quality.
