Life and Leisure in Ancient Rome

Life and Leisure in Ancient Rome

J.P.V.D. Balsdon
3.8/5 (48 ratings)
How did average Romans live out each year, conduct their family life, rear and educate their children? What about slaves in the household? How did people enjoy themselves--did they travel or go to the theater? And, how were those famed gladiators trained? From a wide variety of sources--writers, inscriptions, papyri, mosaics, stones, even graffiti--the answers to these question come into sharp relief. "By far the best single volume on the subject."--The Guardian.
