View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This book deals with the problems encountered by archaeologists reconstructing social history from domestic architecture. Faced with often little more than the remains of foundations and at best "mute" houses, archaeologists have adopted social theories drawn from architects and sociologists. These theories are applied in a series of case studies which cover examples taken from ancient to modern housing. All the main schools of social theory are covered, including feminism, marxism, structuralism and structuration theory, and the influential ideas in architectural theory developed by Henry Glassie, Bill Hillier and Julienne Hanson are also explored.
