Ancient Rome Fun Fact: 

The city of Rome was a maze of haphazard buildings and streets that ended abruptly. People were crammed on top of each other in apartments and tenements. Some of these buildings were five to seven stories high. The closer to the ground that you lived, the more affluent you were. A ground floor family would have separate rooms, glazed windows, running water and an indoor toilet. The top floor family would have to share one room, would have to use the public toilets outside and could be evicted at any time. People in these buildings were in constant fear of fire. There was no real firefighter unit at the time.

Crassus, reputedly the richest man ever, rushed to a building fire and negotiated to buy the place from the owner while his army of slaves stood behind him with water buckets. Once he purchased the place for very cheap, he sent his slaves in to put the fire out. Crassus was kind of a jerk.

Now, this movie scared me as a kid…I remember it being very creepy. Watching it now though, if there had been a pillow nearby, I would have fallen asleep. Listen in as we discuss this classic ghost tale.

A few people that know me know that I am an Ancient Roman History geek, so I am going to throw in a little interesting or fun fact every week from now on because…well, I want to.

The Romans used stone or metal tablets to write the daily news or ‘Acta Diurna’ (daily acts) and posted them in heavily-trafficked areas. A pre-cursor to the newspaper but very heavy.

Enough historical edification for today…
