This article studies Jewish domestic architecture, which was initially influenced by style of houses during the Bronze and Iron Ages. The discussion first takes note of the available scholarship on domestic architecture and the literary evidence of these dwellings. It then reviews the main sites that contain whole neighbourhoods or groups of private dwellings. The article also considers the proposed reconstruction of domestic architecture in Roman-Byzantine Palestine and various implications of the study of domestic architecture.
