The Romans constructed numerous aqueducts to bring water from distant sources into their cities and towns, supplying public baths, latrines (toilet), fountains and private households. The aqueducts carrying water to Rome were covered to prevent the water from being contaminated by dust, dirt, and other impurities and from being heated by the sun. Aqueducts Aqueducts also provided water for mining operations, milling, farms and gardens. Public baths (Thermae) This picture is of one of the oldest surviving Roman bath houses - the bathhouse in Bath, near Bristol in the United Kingdom Men and women used separate bath houses. There was no soap so people used oil instead Sticks called strigils were used to scrape dirt off the body The bathhouse was more than just a place to wash. It was kind of like what shopping malls are today. It was a place to meet friends, a place where you could get something to eat, a place to workout, even a place to read the days news. You could even get your hair cut and styled. Inside the bathhouse were both hot and cold pools, saunas, workout rooms, reading rooms restaurants and even hair salons. And of course there were many slaves to pamper you. The air and water were heated by a number of underground furnaces. Water of two different temperatures-- hot and warm--circulated automatically by thermo-siphon. The largest of these, the Baths of Diocletian, could hold up to 3,000 bathers. Visitors had to pay an entry fee. The bather induced sweating by gradually exposing himself to increasing temperatures. Public baths (Thermae) Latrines -Toilets Roman public latrine found in the excavations of Ostia Antica; unlike modern installations, the Romans saw no need to provide privacy for individual users. Latrines were heated; nothing is colder than marble. sewers Waste water was removed by complex sewage systems. The sewers were covered but had large openings along the streets. Rome's sewers and drains emptied directly into the Tiber, whose polluted state must have been a constant problem for the Roman populace. Languages A 5th-century papyrus showing a parallel Latin-Greek text of a speech by Cicero, In Catilinam. There were two official languages, Latin and Greek.

Amphitheatre Every important Roman town had an amphitheatre where people watched gladiators and wild animals fight to death. Gladiatorial games Adopted from the earlier Etruscans, gladiatorial games originated in the rites of sacrifice due the spirits of the dead and the need to propitiate them with offerings of blood. They were introduced to Rome in 264 BC.
