A Day in the Life of an Ancient Roman
Transcript of A Day in the Life of an Ancient Roman
Sleep in late. There is plenty of leisure time.
Eat a delicous meal. Patricians could afford this.
Dress in fancy clothes with lots of jewelry.
Go off to work, or to the marketplace to socialize. Even if they did work, there was lots of time to lay back and relax.
At about noon, men went to the public baths for a few hours.
In the evening, they might come back to their homes and eat, or attend a festival. Patricians ate nice food by Ancient Roman standards.
They often ate a sweetend porridge with many toppings such as honey, sausage, or cheese.
Meat was also a very popular meal, as was fish. To drink, they usually drank wine sweetend with honey. Patricians didn't have much furniture in their houses, but they had some low-to-the-ground couches where they ate every meal. These weathy Romans also could afford to send their children to Greece for further education. By Quincey Borggard Plebeians lived in small, bare apartments called insulae. The insulae had no kitchen, no bathrooms, and were poorly built. The wealthier plebeins could sometimes afford nicer houses. Plebeian children had to learn the job that their parents (usually their father) had done before them. Since most plebeians did not have kitchens, they got their food from bars or restaurants. This food included unsweetend porridge, bread, pea soup, and (if they were lucky) some meat. Nothing like the nice food of the patricians. A day in the life a plebeian would look a bit like this:
Wake up early.
Eat a plain meal, preparing for a long day at work.
Go to work from morning until evening.
Eat an evening meal. You might have the fortune to go to the public baths or participate in some other form of relaxation. This is a cartoon of what plebeian clothing may have looked like. And that is the end of "A Day in the Life of an Ancient Roman".Thanks for watching!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This picture of a grumpy patrician shows how nice patrician clothing was. As you can see, a day in the life of a Patrician is much different than a day in the life of a Plebeian. If you could really spend a day as a Patrician or as a Plebeian, which would you choose?
