Transcript of Ancient Rome - Patricians
Most Patricians didn't have jobs as they were rich and didn't need them but some patricians were high council officials. JOBS AND EDUCATION WEALTH FOOD AND DRINK Clothing CLOTHING AND HYGIENE HOUSING
The people of Rome enjoyed chariot racing, which was held in the Colluseum. There were four teams, greens, blues, reds and whites. Their supporters often gambled on the outcomes of races treated the charioteers as heroes. However being a charioteer was dangerous and often ended in early death.
The patricians would spend their days enjoying their favourite pastimes, like music, poetry, hunting & horse racing.
The children played games like Board games, Kites, Models of people, Models of animals, Hoops, Stilts & Knucklebones. ACTIVITIES By Caitlyn BIBLIOGRAPHY JOBS EDUCATION Only children from wealthy families went to school. The boys that were lucky enough to be born into a Patrician family recieved an extensive education, usually from a private tutor of which they learnt subjects like Poetry, Literature, History, Geography, Mythology and Languages (like Greek). The girls however, had quite a short education as they were married at 15 or 16.

Hygiene http://www.crystalinks.com/romeclothing.html http://teachers.saschina.org/rderozario/page/6/ Richer romans often had baths set up in their town homes, as well as in their country villas so they did not have to go to the baths and mix with the plebians. If they did go to the baths they had a seperate area to bathe in away from the poorer Romans. http://www.champaignschools.org/staffwebsites/cainza/dailylifeofthepatricians.htm Food Drink Patricians were very fond of their wines. All Romans were.
Romans wine was usually mixed with water and sweetened with honey. They mixed it with water to lower the alcohol concentration as their wines had high alcohol levels. One of the biggest luxuries for the Patricians was having slaves. Slaves opened the door and greeted guests, brang food, looked after the children and did all of the household chores. Another benefit of being a wealthy Patrician was running water in their house. Indoor plumbing was only available if you had special permission. The wealthy also had beautiful mosiacs on the floors of their homes. They wore lots of jewellery made from gold and gemstones. They also enjoyed lots of leisure time as they did not have to work. http://www.reddit.com/r/AskHistorians/comments/1adv6l/im_a_perversely_wealthy_roman_patrician_and_the/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ancient_Roman_cuisine http://rome.mrdonn.org/plebs.html Patricians homes were made, quite often, of brick with red tile roofs, with rooms arranged around a central courtyard. The windows and balconies faced the courtyard, not the street, to keep homes safe from burglars. There were painting on the walls and beautiful mosaics on the floor. There was very little furniture, and no carpeting. They also had a front door, bedrooms, an office, a kitchen, a dining room, a garden, a temple, an atrium, a toilet, and a private bath. http://teachers.saschina.org/rderozario/page/6/ http://www.historyonthenet.com/Romans/childrens_games.htm
