Table of Contents
INTRODUCTION The diet you consumed if you lived in Ancient Rome during the Augustan Age and throughout the duration of the Roman Empire's existence depended upon what station you occupied in life. In the city of Rome itself, you were either part of the upper echelon (a member of the senatorial class or an equestrian). Otherwise, you belonged to the masses of city dwellers or urban poor, consisting of slaves, freedman, and ordinary Roman citizens. This social structure was similar in cities outside of Rome that were part of the Empire, but on a smaller scale. If you lived in the rural areas surrounding Rome, or in one of the Roman Provinces, you might be one of the few remaining small landowners, or more likely a tenant farmer or a slave working on one of the large estates (latifundium) owned by an absentee landlord and run by an overseer. You might also be a soldier in the Roman Army, serving far away from your home and family in one of the provinces or engaged in one of the many wars to expand or protect the Empire. From the most basic diet of the common soldier to the most elaborate of meals enjoyed by those of highest social status in Rome, food played an integral part in everyone's life. However, the type and quality of the food eaten by each of these groups differed greatly.

26. Ancient India - Daily Life
AGE OF empireS daily life - 500 BC- 647 AD. The next thousand years saw a great The Gupta empire existed at about the same time as the roman empire.
Ancient India - Daily Life
Indus Valley Civilization Daily Life - 3000-1500 BC In 1922, archaeologists found the remains of an ancient city called Harappa. They also found another city, located 400 miles southwest of Harappa, called Mohenjo-Daro. Other ancient cities from the same period, arranged in the same way, have been found since. Collectively, this civilization is referred to as the Indus Valley Civilization (sometimes, the Harappan civilization). This civilization existed from about 3000-2,500 BC to about 1500 BC, which means it existed at about the same time as the Egyptian and Sumerian civilizations. HOMES Houses were one or two stories high, made of baked brick, with flat roofs, and were just about identical. Each was built around a courtyard, with windows overlooking the courtyard. The outside walls had no windows. Each home had its own private drinking well and its own private bathroom. Clay pipes led from the bathrooms to sewers located under the streets. These sewers drained into nearly rivers and streams. CLOTHING Men and women dressed in colorful robes. Women wore jewelry of gold and precious stone, and even wore lipstick! Among the treasures found was a statue of a women wearing a bracelet. (Bracelets with similar designs are worn today in India.)

27. Ancient Roman Gods & Goddesses
is paid to omens and portents in every aspect of roman daily life. As theroman Republic turned into the roman empire, Jupiter became known as a
At the founding of Rome, the gods were 'numina', divine manifestations, faceless, formless, but no less powerful. The idea of gods as anthropomorphized beings came later, with the influence from Etruscans and Greeks, which had human form. Some of the Roman Gods are at least as old as the founding of Rome. The concept of numen continued to exist and it was related to any manifestation of the divine. For the Romans, everything in Nature is thought to be inhabited by numina, which explains the big number of deities in the Roman pantheon, as will be shown. Numina manifest the divine will by means of natural phenomena, which the pious Roman constantly seeks to interpret. That's why great attention is paid to omens and portents in every aspect of Roman daily life. A groups of twelve Gods called Dii Consentes is especially honored by the Romans: Iuppiter, Iuno, Minerva, Vesta, Ceres, Diana, Venus, Mars, Mercurius, Neptunus, Volcanus, and Apollo. These are the ones listed by the Poet Ennius about the 3rd Century, B.C.E.. Their gilt statues stood in the Forum, later apparently in the Porticus Deorum Consentium. As there were six male and six female, they may well have been the twelve worshipped at the lectisternium of 217 BC. A lectisternium is a banquet of the gods, where the statues of the gods were put upon cushions, and where these statues were offered meals. The number 12 was taken from the Etruscans, which also worshipped a main pantheon of 12 Gods. Nevertheless, the Dii Consentes were not identified with Etruscan deities but rather with the Greek Olympian Gods (though the original character of the Roman Gods was different from the Greek, having no myths traditionally associated). The twelve Dii Consentes are lead by the first three, which form the Capitoline Triad. These are the three cornerstones of Roman religion, whose rites were conducted in the Capitoleum Vetus on the Capitoline Hill.

    Students will
    • use library resources and the Internet to research the bread and circuses offered up by the rulers of ancient Rome at two main venues, the Colosseum and the Circus Maximus;
    • prepare and give a group report on one of these sites to the rest of the class; and
    • compare and contrast these sites and experiences with professional football or other sports.
    • Computer with Internet access
    • Library reference materials
    • Paper, pens, and pencils
  • Begin by asking students about daily life for the common person in ancient Rome. What were some of the hardships the relatively poor endured? Did they have any benefits or entitlements? Given a choice, would students rather have been a rich Roman citizen or a poor one? Why?
  • Ask if any students are familiar with the phrase "bread and circuses." If so, ask them to explain its meaning. Coined by the Roman poet Juvenal, the term refers to entertainment or offerings intended to foil discontent or distract attention from a situation. In ancient Rome, bread and circuses were used to keep the underprivileged poor people quiet.

Ancient Civilization did not begin in what we think of as the West. It did not start in Paris or Berlin or London or Prague or Brussels or Stockholm. It grew out of the Mediterranean breezes, the sun and desert of Northern Africa, the Persian and West Asian lands. To study Ancient Civilization is to travel - across parts of Africa, southern Europe, the Middle East, and Asia to India. It is a linking voyage, not a reducing trip. It CONNECTS peoples, ideas, patterns, developments, organizations, wars, religions, art, architecture, food and drink. It is a human endeavor about a human story.
