Hello my people, i am Antonia, you are watching "Rome Today" and today we will be uncovering the daily life of girls and women in ancient Rome
Interviewing Albina at her house.
Hello my dear! how about i hand over the right to speak to you and you tell us about your life.
That would be a pleasure!
Everyday i wake up and go to feed my husband and kids, after i feed them i quickly feed myself and get my daughter ready to meet her future husband, while my husband goes to the bathhouse with his friends
I stay home and weave, and i am in charge of keeping the household clean and cozy, i don't do it all myself of course, we have many slaves for that, i just have to make sure that the slaves are doing everything well. Oh, i also teach my daughters to weave and play instruments like the harp. My husband and i have separate territories in the house, i'm not allowed to go on his but he is allowed to go on mine. Lets meet my daughter Domitia!
Hello! I am Domitia, i am 7 years old and tomorrow i am getting married to a man who is 10 years older. I might not want to but i have to. I have to be young so my husband is sure i haven't been with anybody else before, and my mom got married at the same age so i have to do it.
Well, our news report has come to an end. Stick around for the next episode about Gladiators!
