A Glimpse of Teenage Life in Ancient Rome

Welcome back to Rome Across Europe! Today is a very special day. A celebration in fact.

We are going to what it was like to be a Roman teenager in 73 AD. This is the world of Lucius Popidius Secundus, a 17-year old living in Rome.

His life is typical with arranged marriages, coming-of-age festivals, and communal baths. Take a look at this exquisitely detailed lesson on life of a typical Roman teenager 2,000 years ago.

We hope you enjoyed this video. We love to have animation whenever possible. It makes the experience possible to share with young history lovers, of the appropriate age of course.

Come back soon and check out our next journey into Ancient Rome. Till next time, Don’t Stop Rome-ing!
