Women, slaves and gladiators: social exclusion in the classical world – Autumn 2015

Gladiator Mosaic at Kourion (II)The classical world has left a rich source of evidence for the activities of men – but women, children and slaves are described in generally negative legal and philosophical documents. Stone inscription, archaeology and private letters, show a different side to this world, colourful, cruel and dynamic. The role of all these excluded groups tells a remarkable story of human interaction and emancipation, often unexpected in ancient society.
