list two key differenes between anient rome and modern times
Romans walked, rode horseback, or rode in wagons or chariots.
We walk, ride buses, trains, cars, and planes.
Romans sent their dirty clothes to laundries that used urine among other things to get them clean.
We throw our dirty clothes into our washers.
Romans used candles or lanterns.
We have electric lights.
Romans went to a Forum to meet friends, conduct business, and shop.
We go to a mall.
Romans spoke Latin.
Today, nobody speaks Latin although some people can read it.
Romans believed in many gods and goddesses.
Most modern people believe in only one God.
Romans went to public baths where they socialized and conducted business. Only a very few very rich people had baths at home.
We bathe in the privacy of our own homes.
