Daily Life in the Country Illustration

Country Life


Life in the country was much slower paced than in the city.  But Romans still were Romans.  They played the same type games, their houses were designed the same way, the baths were still a daily event, the gods had to worshipped.  Life was slower but it was still Roman life.

Rich Roman citizens went to their country homes to escape from the bustle of Rome.  They were able to relax and enjoy things like hunting and riding that they were unable to do in the city.  There was still a busy social scene visiting neighbors and enjoying the local festivals, but it was not as hectic as Rome itself.

Actual farmers in the country worked much harder.  Like farmers everywhere, they worked seven days a week.  But Roman farmers were still Romans and they too enjoyed visiting neighbors, going to market on market day, and socializing.
