Did all slaves work in cities and towns?

No! Many had to grow crops, watch flocks … and slave children made good shepherds!

slide17

What happened if you did not obey your owner?

You could be punished severely; you could be beaten and even locked up or tied up.

slide19

Yes! You could

be manumitted!

slide20

Other masters freed their slaves in their will.

Some masters manumitted their slaves as a special reward.

And if the master followed certain formalities, the ex-slave became a Roman citizen!

A slave could buy his own freedom with his savings (peculium)

slide21

No, but some slaves who could no longer take the lack of freedom or their owners’ mistreatment could offer resistance!

Could every slave hope to be manumitted?

slide22

They could run away!

They could start a slave rebellion!

They could even use magic!

slide23

They were not always successful …

But …

And punishment could be severe.

slide24

Most slaves just carried on with their lives.

It was going to be a very long time before slavery was officially abolished.
