Abstract and Keywords

Sedentary life and the nucleated agglomeration of houses into villages are considered to be some of the most significant aspects of Neolithic culture. During the several millennia that the Neolithic period lasted in the Mediterranean, domestic space took many forms and was used in many different ways, always, however, within the sphere of a heterarchical organization and with communities undertaking more or less the same range of activities. The aim of the chapter is to present an overview of the available evidence in the Neolithic Mediterranean and discuss current and emerging research agendas for the study of domestic space.

Keywords: domestic space, Mediterranean, identity, material engagement, co-residency
