Hunting and horses: How to be ‘cool’ in late antiquity

Birgitta Hoffmann

The pressures of late antiquity changed the way Romans, and especially young Roman men wished to be seen by their peers. Physical fitness, the ability to own and ride fast horses, the need to measure up to the ‘military men’ all contributed to create a distinct culture, which is not that dissimilar to the ‘young bucks’ of the British Regency period. This dayschool will look at the archaeological evidence of this culture as well as how it relates to some of the literature of the period and how this culture fitted with the rest of society. Expect lots of mosaics!
