We have a lot of historical materials on lifestyles in ancient Rome. Look at the pie chart below. It shows how a Rome citizen spent a day. About 2,000 years ago, in the capital of Rome, which enjoyed unprecedented prosperity in history, there were a lot of high-rise apartment buildings, paved roads, and even public flush toilets. In Japan, which was in the Yayoi period at that time, people lived in pit dwellings, growing rice. There was no system or organization as a nation yet. So how did the Romans live in those days?
The ancient Romans got up around 6:00 when the sun rose, after that they had a light breakfast of bread, honey, and milk. Around 7:00 children left home for school and adults began their work for the day. At that time, it was thought ideal to work for several hours from morning to noon. At noon, they finished up their work and then it was time for leisure. First, they had lunch at a café called a “bar.” For lunch, they had wine, eggs, olives, or salted sardines. After lunch, they spent time watching wild animal fights or the gladiators’ matches in the Colosseum, or enjoying plays in the theaters. After that they went to public baths and spent a long time there. Around 5:00 in the evening, they went back to their houses and had a moderate supper. They finished it before the sun set completely. Finally, they went to bed shortly after dark.
