My Resources

In my previous post I mentioned some of the ways I prepared for the GCSE Day. Here I will talk more about my resources that I used.

Thomas Wiedemann. 1980. Greek and Roman Slavery. London: Croom Helm. This is a great source book from which I took most of my excerpts for the seminar. It consists of thematically arranged translations of ancient texts and inscriptions which mention or discuss slavery in some way. There is section specifically on public slaves in Ancient Rome. This is a great website to look up ancient texts and their translations. I used this to compare some of the texts I wanted to use to choose the best translation.

The following resources were used to find background information on the ancient sources:

  • Sherwin-White, A.N. 1969. “Pliny, the Man and his Letters”. Greece & Rome. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press. 16 (1): 76–90
