Roman Daily Life in Petronius and Pompeii

A three-week seminar for sixteen school teachers on Roman daily life as portrayed in Petronious’s Satyricon and in archaeological and epigraphical evidence in Pompeii.

This summer seminar will provide teachers the opportunity to study Roman Daily Life through Petronius' novel Satyricon and the city of Pompeii. The Petronius novel will be read in Latin, to provide opportunity for translation. Pompeii will be studied through its archaeological history. Therefore, this seminar will bring together two of the methods for studying Roman history--but are usually done in isolation. The seminar will also include excursions and group activities to provide a lens into daily life through food, drink, literature, and artifacts.
