Matz (humanities, Saint Bonaventure U.) uses the writings of ancient Romans themselves, primarily well-known writers but some relatively unknown, to flesh out the daily life of Romans during the period between 500 BC to AD 100. Chapters address education; slavery; food and dining; housing; travel; politics; family life; holidays and leisure activities; sports and amusements; religion; and retirement. Use this fascinating reference resource to find out what it meant to be a typical Ancient Roman. Using plenty of anecdotal material written by Romans themselves, this volume explores the ins and outs of daily living for ordinary people, from their homes, to the foods they ate, to the sports and games they enjoyed. The ancient civilization is brought to life, and students can easily make comparisons between the people of that culture and the people of our own.
