Privata Luxuria - Towards an Archaeology of Intimacy: Pompeii and Beyond




A new book is out! Privata Luxuria - Towards an Archaeology of Intimacy: Pompeii and Beyond edited by Anna Anguissola originates from an International Workshop held at the Center for Advanced Studies of the Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich in 2011.

The workshop was targeted at international early-career researchers who have developed multi-disciplinary and highly innovative approaches to Roman housing. Contributors (Anna Anguissola, Antonio Calabr√≤, Margherita Carucci, Dora D’Auria, Miko Flohr, Riccardo Helg, Taylor Lauritsen, Chiara Maratini, Laura Nissinen and Helmut Schwaiger) come from a variety of background and traditions, adopt different methodologies and draw on diverse theoretical approaches to address privacy and related problems.

Results are now available for wider audience, published by the
Herbert Utz Verlag in their M√ľnchner Studien zur Alten Welt series.
