Living in Ancient Rome covers the period from 753 BCE to 476 CE, focusing on a time set during the reign of Emperor Hadrian. It examines the day-to-day lives of ancient Romans, from the senatorial order to the plebeians and slaves. The structures of government and society are explained, as well as the relationships between families and family members. Particular attention is paid to the contribution of Roman society, including the Roman calendar, aqueducts, coinage, and new craft and building techniques.

With timelines, maps, detailed photography, and full-color illustrations, Living in Ancient Rome is an engaging reference for young adults that brings the ancient world to life.

Chapters include:

  • The Roman Family at Home
  • A Working Life
  • Economy and Roman Law
  • Religion and Relaxation.
