Articles (Society)

The Roman state existed in practice for XIII centuries, being the power which was impacting the history. Therefore, I decided that I would tell the history of ancient Rome in the articles below, which will not necessarily cover only the Eternal City.

I encourage you to send articles and point out any corrections or inaccuracies.

How did the Romans dress?

The upper social strata of Rome paid attention to how they dressed and what fashion prevailed at that time. Roman clothes owed a lot to Greeks, but it should be emphasized that the Romans created their own style and cut of clothing (you can say more sophisticated).

What beauty was appreciated by Romans?

Ovid, the Roman poet of the August epoch, in his work Medicamina Faciei Feminae, which is a short work on the care of the female body, indicates what is female beauty: pale complexion, rosy cheeks, dark eyes and devoid of unnatural odors.

Black people in ancient Rome

Ancient Romans, who had under their control, huge tracts of land certainly had to deal with the black population on a daily basis. Interestingly, the ratio of white to the black race was not always beneficial only for the first one.
