Chapter Summary

The modern town of Éauze lies in the départment of the Gers in southwestern France, about 1 km to the north-west of the site of the Roman town of Elusa. In the light of the perceived imbalance between present knowledge of public buildings on the one hand, and private houses and la vie quotidienne on the other, a project was formulated to excavate the entirety of what, on the aerial photographs, appeared to be a large, peristyle house lying near the centre of the town in the field named 'Cieutat'. The research aims of this project are to obtain a time-slice of the development of this part of the town from its origins to its abandonment, an appreciation of the successive phases of the town-house with an understanding of their social significance and a perspective on the cultural and economic impact of Roman-style urbanisation on the Elusates more generally.

Keywords: Éauze; Cieutat; private houses; public buildings; Roman-style urbanisation; southwestern France
