The Romans built new towns. These were often protected by walls and there was everything a citizen of Roman Britain would need inside – houses, shops, meeting spaces, workshops, temples and bathhouses.The ruins of a Roman underfloor heating system.

Some Roman homes were kept warm with an underfloor heating system called a ‘hypocaust’. The floor was raised up by piles of tiles or stone pillars to allow warm air to circulate.

A Roman villa didn’t have a garden. Instead, it had a courtyard inside the house called a peristylium.

This was a peaceful place where the family could relax amongst plants, sculptures and fountains.

Around the outside of the courtyard was a shaded walkway. This was sometimes decorated with beautiful wall paintings and mosaics.

Most homes had their own shrine to the gods called a lararium. This was a sacred place where the family made offerings.

Every day, they prayed to their gods as well as to household guardian-spirits called lares. They believed these would protect their home and keep them safe.

The family could choose any god to worship, although two favourites were Vesta, the goddess of the home and Janus, the god of doors.

When wealthy families wanted to show off, they would throw an extravagant dinner party in the banqueting room (triclinium).

Their friends would turn up in their most fashionable robes and the party would go on for hours.

During dinner, everyone would lie across large couches, while slaves brought them food and wine. People ate with their hands, so guests cleaned themselves with perfumed water between courses.

There was also entertainment, with music, dancing and poetry readings.

Rich Romans would have a kitchen (culina) in their home, but they’d never dream of doing the cooking themselves. They had slaves who prepared all their meals for them.

Wealthy people would have ingredients imported from all over the Roman empire. They would have jugs of wine, olive oil and garum (a kind of fish sauce), as well as spices like pepper, ginger and cinnamon.

Cooks would use these to prepare lavish meals and some unusual delicacies, like dormice and sea urchins.
