Daily meals constitute vital components of everyday practice, contribute to the formation of domestic spaces and play significant role to the development of social ties. This presentation explores the boundaries of domestic space through an analysis of kitchen spaces both in closed building contexts and open-air spaces. Key element of this analysis is the spatial distribution of cooking facilities in diverse settlement contexts during the Neolithic period in Northern Greece. The archaeological research of the last three decades has revealed a distinct variety of settlements that transformed our perception on the formation of social and domestic spaces in the region. In this study selected sites unfold the variable dynamics of domestic spaces through a contextual analysis of cooking practices and reveal the growth of various micro-histories of Neolithic lifeways in local and regional scale.
