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 labour within the household and the allocation of domestic space for men and women.Bradley A. Ault received his Ph.D. in Classical archaeology from Indiana University and is associate professor of classics at the State University of New York at Buffalo. He has been awarded Horstman and Fulbright Fellowships for research at the Freie Universitt, Berlin, and the American School of Classical Studies at Athens respectively. He has also held the Blegen Research Fellowship at Vassar College. Ault has participated in archaeological research at Greek and Roman sites from Britain to Israel. One of his areas of specialization is the archaeology of the ancient Greek city and household. With Lisa C. Nevett, he has edited a collection of papers, Ancient Greek Houses and Households: Chronological, Regional, and Social Diversity (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2005). He is also the author of a number of articles on Greek domestic architecture and household matters that have appeared in the journals Hesperia and Classical World, as well as in several edited volumes.
