As the Romans Did

A Sourcebook in Roman Social History

Third Edition

Author Jo-Ann Shelton and Pauline Ripat

  • Offers a rich, revealing look at everyday Roman life-from leisure and entertainment to housing and city life to women and enslaved persons.
  • Clear, lively translations
  • Thematic organization facilitates in-depth study of a topic
  • Inclusion of material evidence sets As the Romans Did apart from other comparable introductory textbooks and sourcebooks for ancient society currently on the market, which tend to include images primarily as illustrations rather than evidence in their own right.

New to this Edition:

  • 50 new literary selections expands the book's coverage of everyday Roman life. New topics include magic, witchcraft, oracles, and Roman concepts of gender.
  • The text now offers material evidence, with 38 visual sources that function in several ways
  • New co-editor Pauline Ripat (University of Winnipeg)
