Sport and Pastimes by Nicola Barber

Roman Life is a series that will explore the establishment of the Roman Empire and the notable people of the age, such as Augustus, Virgil and Homer. The text will chronicle the features and characteristics of the Roman age and explore the lives of the different social classes, as well as men, women and children. Readers will learn what it was like to live as a Roman, be able to compare how their present lives have been influenced by the past and learn how much has changed since Roman times. This title examines how the Romans spent their spare time, from hosting dinner parties to listening to music and going to the theatre. It also looks at sports the Romans enjoyed, such as gladiator fights, athletics, chariot racing, ball games and wild animal shows.
