Myths, Folktales, and Fairy Tales Home Welcome to the Myths, Folktales and Fairy Tales Internet project. We've compiled contributions from many authors to create this rich resource for learning about and writing in these genres. During the project, we will have several authors live online to discuss their work in these genres and to answer questions from young writers working on creating their own. When we read these traditional stories from around the world, we find that the things we value most highly, fear most deeply, and hope for most ardently are valued, feared and hoped for by all people. Still, while the same yearnings are expressed, each culture has a unique response made richer by details from its society and the local ecology.
Roman Social Class and Public Display Social Classes in the Late Republic Rome was a highly hierarchial and class-conscious society, but there was the possibility of mobility between most classes (indicated in the diagram above by dotted lines) because by the second century BCE class was no longer determined solely by birth. The classes described below superseded the old patrician/plebeian distinction, though certain elements of dress and religious positions and rituals were still reserved for patricians. There was a large gulf between the wealthy upper classes (the senatorial and equestrian classes, shown on the pediment of the temple above), and the poorer lower classes, though it was still possible—although quite difficult—to move upwards by acquiring sufficient wealth. Upper Classes Senatorial class (senatores): The basis for this class was political.

The Roman Gladiator: The Rock Star of the Roman Empire A gladiator was a professional fighter who fought other gladiators and even animals in amphitheaters around the Roman Republic and Roman Empire. Gladiators fought for over 600 years of Rome’s history, evolving from modest ceremonial combats into grand entertainment spectaculars, filled with violence and gore. These battles, often fought to a bloody death, were adored by the Roman citizens, as were the gladiators themselves. The word gladiator comes from the Latin gladiatores, or “swordsmen”, taken from the Latin word gladius, which was a short sword used by the legionaries. Gladiators were by no means as high ranking on the Roman status ladder as a soldier, but they were nonetheless regarded highly in Roman society.

Ancient Roman Medicine EtruscansAncient RomeMedieval RomeRenaissanceBaroqueModern Rome Ancient Roman medicine was in many ways a development of what they learned from the Greeks and then applied in exasperated situations such as continuous war or gladiatorial shows. The wealth of Rome was such that it created medical situations and needs which required the best techniques and knowledge of the time: the wealth of the rich created a demand for cosmetic surgery. Large cities with high concentrations of population regularly created situations of fire or plague of various sorts and this brought a need for public health strategies, even if only rudimentary.
By special request, Beading Made Easy! As promised, here's the scoop on beaded knitting, crochet style. I much prefer this method because it saves me from having to string hundreds of beads onto my yarn, a pretty onerous task if ya ask me! Plus it saves wear and tear on the yarn since you don't have to slide all those beads along the length of the yarn as you do with the knitted on method.
