Here is a unique collection of primary source material from the Roman world. The Latin inscriptions in the Kelsey Museum are among the best primary sources we have for documenting the lives of the lower classes in the Roman world. They provide unique evidence of the details of Roman daily life, including beliefs, occupations, families, and attitudes toward death. As documents of undisputed authenticity, the Kelsey Museum inscriptions are historically invaluable. They furnish students of the ancient world, including historians, archaeologists, and philologists, with important evidence of daily life in ancient Rome. At a time when the study of classical civilizations has broadened to include more work on those below the ruling class, these primary sources are a tremendous resource expanding our understanding of all components of the Roman world.
