The purpose of this chapter is to provide a summary description of the main types of houses found in Roman Britain. This is not as easy as it might seem, since every building was crafted against individual circumstance. But amidst many expressions of unique identity it is also possible to recognise some common approaches to the use of space. Before reviewing the ways in which one house differed from another it is first useful to explore these areas of shared intent.
