Abstract: Banning describes house construction and remodeling at 'Ain Ghazal. Due to excellent preservation it has been possible to discover the inhabitants frequently remodeled their houses. Banning looks at how changes in the co-residential group might account for the frequent changes to the domestic stuctures, especially since these are such substantial structures. (Co-residential groups are not static, but continually change, a process known as the 'development cycle.').
