- The Romans: From Cradle to Grave
|Coordinator(s)||Bronwyn Hopwood (firstname.lastname@example.org)|
This unit traces the cycle of life in Ancient Rome, from cradle to grave, with particular emphasis on the Roman family. Study of the human condition in Rome from birth, through childhood, marriage, aging and death, provides a unique window into the lives, customs, popular beliefs, philosophies, and commemorative practices of the Romans as a society and as individuals. By questioning how the Romans celebrated life, and prepared for and dealt with death, this unit deepens our understanding of Roman society and provides an opportunity to engage with some of the issues that life and death pose to our own society today.
