Im doing city life in roman italy from OCR for AS level classics.
We havnt done much on literary texts AT ALL and we've barely done any inscirpitons properly either, all we did do a lot of was houses, so is that bad teaching or is that good teaching focusing on what matters do you think? because on the syllabus it says we need:

the historical context of the cities; their development including their decline and, where relevant, destruction and resultant preservation;
• prominent individuals, groups, events and institutions of Pompeii, Herculaneum and Ostia;
• social identity and the different social classes within the cities;
• the definition of social identity through public buildings and inscriptions in public places, through funerary monuments, and through domestic space (including gardens) and decoration;
• use of domestic space (including gardens) and the extent to which schemes of decoration reflect this;
• changing use of domestic space over time

POMPEII:
House of Menander (I.x.4)
House of Octavius Quartio (II.ii.5 – aka House of Loreius Tiburtinus)
House from Region VII. Ins. Occ. 12–15 with fish amphorae mosaics (Umbricius Scaurus)
Eumachia Building (Cooley & Cooley E41)
Tomb of Eumachia (Cooley & Cooley G15–19)
Tomb G. Munatius Faustus (Nocera Gate) (Cooley & Cooley G38–47a)
Naevolia Tyche (Munatius Faustus) (Cooley & Cooley G47b)
Amphitheatre (Cooley & Cooley D1–7)
Painting of the amphitheatre riot, House of Actius Anicetus (I.iii.23) (C&C D37)
Temple of Isis (Cooley & Coole

OSTIA
Garden houses, including the House of the Dioscures
House of Apuleius
House/Insula of Diana
Baths of Mithras, including the imagines clipeatae and Mithraeum
Baths of the Forum
Piazza of the Corporations (Piazza delle Corporazione)
Great Warehouse (Grandi Horrea)
Firefighters’ barracks (Caserma dei Vigili)
Harbours of Claudius & Trajan at Portus

Herculaneum:
The House in Opus Craticium
House of the stags/deers
Samnite House
Suburban baths

and let me just stop here and ask a dumb question, but what on Earth are all those things to the right? translations I assume? but why?
Here's the really confusing bit, what's all that stuff to the right below mean?

Literary texts:
Petronius’ Satyricon 29–30, 45, 71, 77
Vitruvius De Architectura VI.5
Pliny Letters 3.6, 6.16, 6.20 and 7.18
Tacitus, Annals 14.17 (Cooley & Cooley D34) and 15.18
Strabo, Geography 5.3.5 (aka 231–232)
Pliny the Elder, Natural History 9.5.14–15
Suetonius, Life of Claudius 18 and 20

Inscriptions:
CIL X 810 = ILS 3785, CIL X 813 = 6368, CIL X 808, 8348 = ILS 63, CIL X 809 = 64, D’Ambrosio and De Caro (1983) 11OS (Cooley & Cooley E42–E47)
CIL X 1024 = ILS 6366 (Cooley & Cooley F91)
AE (1992) 278a–d (Cooley & Cooley H20a and H20b)

CIL X.852 (Cooley & Cooley B10)
AE (1976), no. 144
Thylander B310

I could reply but it would be of no use to you now
It refers to books and the letters and numbers are the archeological names.

After digging up this thread, I'm pretty sure you count as an archaeologist.
