In Roman times, slavery was regarded as a normal and necessary part of life; indeed, many of the characters we've met in the stories so far have been slaves, including Grumio, Clemens and Melissa. In this Stage, we'll learn more about slaves, their life and - if they were lucky ("felix") - how they could win their freedom.
NB: the stories are now set in the past.
