* The three reviewers have combined their different fields fof interest to discuss architectural structures against their natural and social background with the aid of computer applications. Fisher is an archaeologist who has excavated domestic structures and studies their architectural and decorative aspects (cf. Fisher, M., “An early Byzantine settlement at Kh. Zikrin (Israel). A contribution to the archaelogy of pilgrimage in the Holy Land,in Actes du XIe Congré Int. d'Archéologie Chrétienne 1986, II [Rome] 1787-1807); Potchter is a climatologist and geographer who analyzes the geographical and environmental development of different architectural and urban structures in Israel (cf. Potchter, O., “Climatic aspects in the building of ancient urban settlements in Israel,Energy and buildings 15-16 (1990-91) 93104 ; Adaption of Roman and Byzantine buildings to climate conditions in the Land of Israel,Wissenschaftliche Berichte des Instituts fuer Meteorologie und Klimaforschung der Universit ät Karlsruhe 16 [1992] 3546). Jacob is a geographer and computer analyst who deals with computerized data sets and their graphic representation. For this review, plans of dwelling houses publised by Hirschfeld, and other plans, have been reduced to a common scale and orientation,in the Dept. of Geography at Tel Aviv University, using arc+ software patented by the Israeli company ACA. They constitute a small part of a larger study on the archaeological and climatological aspects of architecture in ancient Israel.
