Rich, Poor, Slave, Free, Politics, and Getting Ahead in Society

The authors are still working on the articles in this section. This area of study would be an excellent choice for middle school or high school students in classrooms that are involved with the Beyond the Classroom Walls project. Participating students and classes will have the opportunity to have their history research projects and original art added to this project and published on a university Web site as well as having them incorporated into the next release of this resource on CD-ROM.

In particular, we are looking for articles on Roman education of young people, careers in Roman society, differences between rich, poor, slave, and free, the role of women in ordinary life, different classes of slavery in the Roman empire, and information on contemporary civilizations beyond the borders of the Roman Empire.
