Overview

From the enduring monuments of antiquity, we can understand the "glory that was Greece." But while we may marvel at the Colosseum or the Roman aqueducts, what do we know about the daily life of those who deigned and built them? What did they eat and wear? How did they furnish and light their homes? How did they fill their leisure hours? What was expected of women? The Romans: Life and Customs answers these and many other questions. The authors examine Greek architecture, accounts of classical historians and poets, wall paintings and statuary, as well as the trove of information from Pompeii and Herculaneum to recreate the texture of daily life. Over 200 hundred line illustrations supplement the text.
