Abstract:
This article looks at the possibility that larger town-houses and villas in Britain had separate summer and winter dining-rooms by analysing their design and location as well as the arrangement and subject matter of their mosaics. Dining-rooms suitable for summer use can be identified throughout the Roman period; from the second century these are often paired with large, richly adorned rooms with hypocausts which were perhaps their winter equivalent. The development of these dining-rooms is charted from simple examples to elaborate and more obviously seasonal types built in the fourth century. Includes:
