Herculaneum III.11. Casa del Tramezzo di Legno or House of the Wooden Screen.

Excavated between 1928-29.

 

Part 1   Part 2   Part 3   Part 4   Part 5   Part 6   Plan  

 

According to Maiuri, this house with its front façade preserved up to the second storey, and the portal, windows and small lights which break it at various heights, offers one of the most complete examples of a private house façade at either Pompeii or Herculaneum. This clearly patrician house originally extended across the entire insula, but later some of the rooms were detached and became humble dwellings and shops for artisan workers.

See Maiuri, Amedeo, (1977). Herculaneum. 7th English ed, of Guide books to the Museums Galleries and Monuments of Italy, No.53 (p.32-34).
