Infancy and Earliest Childhood in the Roman World

In an era of very high infant mortality, the first year of a child's life during the Roman Empire was packed with challenges. Recent research in archaeology, art, literature, history, and science paints a vivid, if sobering, picture of the physical and emotional investment by Roman families in the health and well-being of their children. This lecture by Maureen Carroll is presented in partnership with the University of Manitoba Classics.
