This is the second edition of the sourcebook on Roman social history. The selections, all in English translations prepared by the author, are drawn from a wide array of documents - letters, manuals, recipes, graffitti, and inscriptions as well as literary sources - and together they offer an insight into family life, housing, entertainment, health, education, religion, and other important topics. This introduction to Roman culture is appropriate for courses in ancient Roman history and for general readers interested in ancient history. For the new edition, new selections have been added and bibliographical material has been updated.
