Daily Life - Ancient Rome for Kids What was daily life like in Rome? Despite the many manuscripts, letters, speeches and inscriptions we have found, there are many things about daily life in Rome we don't know. We really don't know what the Romans did with trash around the house. Did they just throw it outside, or did they have trash people to pick it up? Were cats pets or just used to catch rodents (rats and mice)? We do know, however, a lot about how Rome was governed.

Classical Reception Studies Network The Classical Reception Studies Network (CRSN) aims to facilitate the exchange of information and to encourage collaboration in the field of classical reception studies by bringing together departments and individuals from across the world.

Gracchi Brothers The social and political landscape of the Roman world was about to undergo an abrupt transformation in the Late Republic. The emergence, and eventual assassination of the Gracchus brothers, Tiberius and Gaius, is often considered the first major step towards the fall of the Roman Republic. While Roman class and social affairs had for centuries consisted of machinations by various individuals to get their way (such as the Plebs withdrawal from Rome in the early Republic), the activities of the Gracchi completely altered the state of Roman politics. The careers of these two men were marked by riots, murder, and ultimately, outright manipulation of the common population to achieve their goals. The tremendous growth of the Empire, through both acquisition of land, slaves, and various citizen classes led to a fundamental divide in the Roman political system. From 137 to 121 BC, Tiberius, and then Gaius Gracchus, stood at the center of this turmoil.
