Taught by Professor Gregory S. Aldrete | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses
Food, shelter, and a livelihood are three of the most basic needs for people everywhere. In this lecture, Professor Aldrete surveys what Romans ate, where they lived, what their homes were like, and what they did for a living. While the upper classes did not work, farming and skilled trades were important jobs throughout the republic.
