Beautiful story
Free time and work-life balance - all terms that are completely normal for us. But what was it actually like for the Romans?
I cordially invite you to join me on a search for traces of Roman antiquity. What did people do all day long in a time without social media?
In our modern times, it is normal to pursue one or more leisure activities, so that one can hardly speak of boredom. Did leisure and distraction already exist in ancient everyday life?
In an entertaining lecture, I will show you whether the concept of leisure time was known in Roman antiquity. In addition, I would like to show you who indulged in leisure activities and what people did in their free time.
