Documentary Description


The power and the glory of the Roman Empire were built on the backs of millions of ordinary citizens and slaves. In this program, the University of Cambridge’s Keith Hopkins, archaeologist Rick Jones, historian Andrew Wallace-Hadrill, and others delve into life as it was lived by the multitudes. They explore the lodgings and workshops, bars and baths, of Pompeii, Herculaneum, and mighty Rome itself as they follow in the footsteps of an average tradesman and his wife. Topics include diet, hygiene, work, recreation, marriage, and slavery—and behind it all, the vast inequality between rich and poor. A Discovery Channel Production. (51 minutes)
