About the Author

by Penelope Allison


"Penelope Allison's study of artefact assemblages in thirty of the larger houses from Pompeii is a welcome addition to published work available to students of this ancient city. ... Her book has updated and made available a reconstructed data-set that is unique and needs to be better known by those studying Roman Houses and Domestic Space." Ray Laurence, Journal of Roman Studies 95 (2005):317-318 "...a must read for everyone dealing with artefacts in a Roman residential context. It perfectly demonstrates the possibilities and impossibilities of artefact analysis in a prime site of Roman archaeology, making it a useful example of research elsewhere." Stephan T.A.M. Mols, Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2005.07.29 "This is a very interesting and important book. It is valuable for all archaeologists because it explains in good detail how complex the site of Pompeii is and because it demonstrates the kinds of information that we can derive from detailed analysis of rooms and their contents. For anyone concerned with Roman urban society, it presents a wealth of information about houses, rooms, and material culture of the latter half of the first century AD...This book is a welcome addition to the scholarly literature about Pompeii, and it has much to teach any archaeologist or historian concerned with understanding past domestic material culture and behavior." Peter S. Wells, Professor of Anthropology, University of Minnesota, Society for Archaeological Sciences Bulletin 2005 (28:3): 13-14
