Things Roman

Here we see a typical Roman bath house. Unlike what we see in films or read in novels people in this period did not want to be dirty any more than we do today. .Bath houses were common in this period and were pklaces where people could gather and discuss various important events as they bathed. The way of life created things which people outside of the empire wanted for themselves. We do not read about romans fleeing the empire to find a better life. The reality was those outside the empire wanted the things and often the life style of the romans.
