Domestic Spaces in the Roman West: Architectural Adaptations in the Provinces of Gaul, Germania, and Britannia

From the website:

[Sean Tennant's] doctoral research concentrates on informing the long-standing historical discussion on “Romanization,” the phenomenon of cultural change in the provinces of the Roman Empire. Specifically, he is examining the remains of domestic architecture in the provinces of Britannia, Gaul, and Germania using a network-based approach to look for patterns in how space was used. Using a method called space syntax analysis, he is looking at culturally-specific patterns of space use and ultimately, broader regional patterns that might inform how we understand Rome’s interaction and cultural assimilation of her northern provinces.
