This book consists of a discussion of the features of the North Italian domus and a catalogue of over sixty examples. George examines the components of the domus such as atria, porticoes, peristyle gardens and triclinia as well as interior decoration, construction, the houses in their urban context and how they fit into the overall picture of Roman domestic architecture. The catalogue consists of sixty-two plans of houses which builds up a good picture of the range and complexity of the buildings under scrutiny.
