This is the second edition of a popular and successful sourcebook on Roman social history.
The selections, all in English translations prepared by the author, are drawn from a wide array of documents - letters, manuals, recipes, graffiti, and inscriptions as well as literary sources - and together they offer a fascinating glimpse into family life, housing, entertainment, health, education, religion, and other important topics.
This is a unique introduction to Roman culture, appropriate for courses in ancient Roman history and for general readers interested in ancient history. For the new edition, new selections have been added and bibliographical material has been updated.
