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 looks at the different types of jobs that both poor and rich Romans had. It explains what a consul, senator or legionary did, and what the duties of the emperor were. It also shows what being a gladiator, priest or priestess, farmer or chariot racer involved.
