Living with Roman slavery: evidential approaches to understanding the slave experience

This course gives students a short introduction to the life of a slave in ancient Rome. Due to the lack of evidence from slaves themselves, it will emphasise the importance of using a variety of evidentiary sources (literature, legislation and material culture) when studying Roman slavery and will use those to develop an understanding of the life of a slave, from the point of enslavement to the point of manumission.
