The excavation of 6 courtyard houses at Pella in the Jordan Valley, destroyed in a massive earthquake in the mid-8th c. A.D., provides an exceptional opportunity to study a wide range of objects from daily life within a secure archaeological context. The recovery of detailed information about the layout of buildings and the contextual origin of the many domestic objects recovered permit a full reconstruction of life in the household, especially the use of space. Generally, the upstairs area served as the primary living quarters, whereas the ground floor was used to house valuable domestic animals and for light workshop activities.
