A study of Roman society, focussing on the day-to-day life of Rome's inhabitants. Topics include familial relationships, health and wellbeing, urban infrastructure, floods, fires, travel, among others.
This course investigates the social structure of Roman society; how different societal groups interact, and their respective roles. We then explore the daily life of Romans by looking at such things as occupations, illness and medical practices, birth, marriage, old age, housing and the amenities of the city, among other topics. Through our study we will gain an insight into the realities of Roman life, a topic often ignored in political histories; as well as some understanding of the diversity present in the Roman world.
