Lighting was an important element in the design and use of late antique housing. Daylight was channeled through windows and doorways, but important social activity also took place at dawn and after dark when artificial lighting was required, and commonly used. Modern IT techniques, particularly the use of ray-tracing, allow conclusions to be drawn about the way that lighting was used in houses. Lighting was used to create a ‘theatrical’ atmosphere during dinners. Blanket lighting of rooms was not available, and lighting was used to create areas of light and shade complementing the d袯r of the room. The distinction between male control of the house at night and female control during the day was also one between night time with artificial lighting, and daylight.
