Men's work would depend on where you lived - in the cities or the countryside.
In the Roman Cities there was work to be done in shops, bath houses, and building work.
Tradesmen, shopkeepers and craftsmen worked in Rome and the other cities of the Roman Empire.
Shops in Ancient Rome included Bakers, Barbers, Booksellers, Butchers, Cobblers, Fishmongers, Food Shops, Furniture Sellers, Olive Oil Sellers, Perfume Makers, Taverns and of course Money Lenders. There were many other trades - can you think of any?
Many occupations and jobs in Ancient Rome would have been aimed at the provision of the daily needs of the population of Rome.
Many of the shopkeepers would have been slaves or ex-slaves, and Roman Slaves would certainly have done all the work requiring muscle power.
Another very important job was the administration of the empire, and many men would have been involved in this work.
In the Roman Countryside, work would be centred on the villa.
The land would need to be worked to produce crops. Vines were grown for grapes to make wine. There would have been olive groves to tend; olives were an important crop for their oil. A form of wheat called "emmer" was grown for Roman Bread.
There were also animals to tend. The Roman farmers kept goats, horses, pigs and small birds.
