A detailed analysis of the building techniques and styles of Pompeii's early limestone framed domestic houses, which date from the fourth and third century BC. The first part of the study examines building components and techniques, including props, posts and panels. Peterse discusses atrium houses with or without adjoining rooms and differences in construction, design and chronology. The second part contains an in-depth examination of the composition of mortar (by Ineke Joosten), including mineral and chemical analyses and a suggested chronology. The final section studies early domestic architectural design with consideration of small and larger houses of the middle classes and the élite, variables and constants and an examination of the standard layout of a typical house. The House of the Surgeon is one of the many houses considered. The book concludes with an inventory by phase and numerous building plans. 182p plus 21 b/w figs and 96 b/w pls (Gieben 1999)
