Daily Life of the Plebeians Cobblers Butchers Dressmakers Leather workers Tradesmen Craftsmen A working day was not long Some plebeians only just scraped through to make a living Daily life of the Patricians Men and women spent their afternoons relaxing and eating together Patrician families lived good, easy, laid back lives.
