This book examines how the various sex practices in the shape of people’s lives and experiences between the societies of ancient Greece and RomeExplore how gender is linked to other socio-political factors of characteristics such as wealth, status, age and stage of life, as well as with individual choices, in the world very different from classical antiquity which is fascinating in its own right.But later, however, perceptions of ancient literature and art profoundly influenced the development of gender and hierarchical ideologies in the West, and influenced the study of gender itself.Questioning the best way to unravel and interpret difficult sources is a key objective.This book exploits a wide range of archaeological, material cultural, visual, spatial, spatial, demographic, epigraphic and literary objects evidence to consider households, families, life cycles and the generation of time, legal and political, institutions, beliefs about bodies, sex and sexuality, gender and space, the economic consequences of the engendering of practices, and gender in the world.
