Abstract:

In all societies, the family and household provide for the necessities of life. The remains of houses at sites reveal the physical contexts of ancient family life, permitting archaeologists to reconstruct family size, composition and function. This program studies how the forms and functions of households vary from society to society, and how the infrastructure of domestic economy supports not only the family, but larger social groupings as well. The discovery of a complete house at Soren, El Salvador, supports the evidence from Copan, Honduras, and Teotihuacan, Mexico, of the structure and life in an ordinary Mayan household. Contrasts that society with findings on Roman households from Pompeii.
