People in the Roman World
The Roman world has eft a huge ‘archive’ of documents and inscriptions allowing one to reconstruct much of the daily life of a wide range of the people who made the empire – from farmers and merchants to soldiers, sailors and their wives and families. The course will look at many of these documents, drawing on material from Britain to Egypt.
