Are You Ready for "Arde Lucus"?

Arde Lucus 2013 starts tomorrow: Lugo will be a Roman town for three days. 

Here are a couple of videos that can help you get the spirit of the celebration. Both videos are part of Ted-Ed/Lessons Worth Sharing, which means they are really good from an educational point of view.

The first video is about the domestic life of leisure of young, wealthy girls; it focuses on four sisters - called "Domitia," all of them. While you watch the videos, choose the subtitles (captions) in English - they will not be difficult to follow since the images follow the text closely.

Once you have watched the video, you can do a multiple choice exercise about it; click here. For extra information about freeborn women in ancient Rome and about the cultural aspects in the video, click here

The second video is about a 17-year-old boy living in Rome in 73 AD; his name is Lucius Popidius Secundus. You will see what life was like for a typical Roman teenager: arranged marriages, coming-of-age festivals, and communal baths.
