In Roman Society David Taylor concentrates on aspects of the life of the diverse groups of people who lived in the Roman world - their homes, work, leisure, beliefs and attitudes. Providing valuable coursework material for GCSE Latin as well as Classical Studies, this book focuses on the period 50 BC to AD 150, an era of dramatic political upheavals when important social changes took place. The thoughts and feelings of the Romans themselves can best be discovered through the words of their writers, and this book contains a wide variety of translated passages from the works of poets, historians and novelists - even examples of graffiti which have survived on the walls of houses and shops. '...a carefully planned and carefully written study...thanks to the author's skill in lucidly condensing a topic without suppressing its richness, many readers will gain from it a rewarding experience' - LACT Newsletter.
