Each of the individual researchers will study an aspect of the main issue. Two of the doctoral students, Ms Nissinen and Mr Simelius, will address particular problematic areas of the Roman house, the bedchamber or cubiculum and the peristyle, respectively, to find answers to issues of usage, terminology, tradition and social convention. Dr Tuori will study the house as a site of official proceedings and thus the interlinkedness of public and private spheres. Mr Heikonen will be mostly responsible for the 3D CAD designs and his study will explore the use of new technology in the virtual reconstruction of historical sites. Existing data from his previous studies on the Roman public buildings will be used to compare building design and their adaptation to new usages.
