Help your students understand that the glory of Rome was built on the backs of slaves. Aspects of slave life, from their capture and public sale to their duties and privileges as specially skilled retainers of aristocrats, are examined in documentary visuals and narration. Slave revolts, punishment, and ways in which emancipation could be accomplished are also described. The teacher's guide includes questions for discussion.
