    Life in ancient Greece was quite different for men and women. Whilst men were expected to take an active part in the public life of their city, women were expected to lead a private life as wives and mothers. Their lives were centred on the home. Slavery was a central feature of life in Greece. Families of reasonable wealth would have slaves. ROBERT GARLAND is the Roy D. and Margaret B. Wooster Professor of Classics at Colgate University. He is the author of a number of books on the ancient world, including The Greek Way of Death (), The Piralus (), The Greek Way of Life (), Religion and the Greeks (), and The Eye of the Beholder: Deformity and Disability in the Graeco-Roman World ().

    EVERYDAY LIFE IN ANCIENT GREECE BY C. E. ROBINSON PREFACE THERE is a story told of a certain English poet, who, as an undergraduate at Oxford, was compelled to undergo an examination in Divinity. His upbringing had not included a study of the Bible and his preparation for the examination had been wofully inadequate. Additional Physical Format: Online version: Robinson, Cyril E.

    Ancient Greek Everyday Life. Men if they were not training in military, or discussing politics went to the Theatre for entertainment. To watch dramas that they could relate to, including tragedies and comedies. These often involved current politics and gods in some form. Ancient Greece and its mythology has fascinated people for thousands of years, and few elements have intrigued people quite like the Eleusinian Mysteries, which the Greeks believed transformed the initiates and gave them knowledge that eased both the living of life on earth and allayed fears of death, allowing an acceptance of their ultimate fate.
