In this book, Ray Laurence RL argues that it is high time to use literary and archaeological media synthetically. There is a reflexive relationship between the two: "Literary sources," writes RL, "can inform us about the 'social rhythms' that underlie the material culture" 8. The relationship between space and society is evidenced not only in Pompeii but in every developed society: people are born into space, operate within space, and their activities are promoted or prohibited by space. At the same time, people structure and re-structure space. A synthetic approach can only supplement our understanding of Pompeii's physical and social contexts.
