Drawing on concepts common to historical anthropologyand incorporating evidence from multiple lines of research (archaeological, iconographic, textual, etc.), this volume aims to contribute to the reinvigoration of a social history of antiquity through new research projects, publications, and digital tools from both individual and collaborative efforts.

At a time when we reflect much on the issue of social cohesion, on the influence of architecture in lifestyles and on relationships between neighborhoods within large modern cities, this book aims to approach the study of "inhabitating modes" in roman urban dwellings.
