Rome ColosseumThis post is about a history documentary about life of Romans in Anceint Rome.

Recently with the political awakening of sorts for India’s middle class  the term “Aam Aadmi” is being used a lot. We even have a Aam Aadmi Party now. The everyday Indian, is what the Aam Aadmi is called.

The daily wage worker, blue collar, white collar. Well, just about everyone who wields littler power and pays taxes. A few days ago,  I came across a wonderful documentary on YouTube.

It basically describes how life was for the common people in ancient Rome lived.

Much is written about Kings, Queens, Senators and Generals throughout history but a peek into the everyday life of everyday people is pretty neat. See how crude or sophisticated the Roman society could be through the eyes of Mary Beard.
