Learning like the Romans did
Nearly all Roman children got a formal education. This includes girls as well as slaves. However, the formals education of the lower classes was considerably shorter than that of the rich people's children. But one thing all of them had in common: The tools for writing and reading. But not only children used those same tools. Even the great philosophers and poets of that era wrote on the same materials and with the same materials.
