Though ancient Greece and Rome had their share of terrible jobs, perhaps the worst was that of the Roman gladiator. He trained endlessly, only to fight for his life anytime entertainment was needed. While some gladiators became rich and famous, most were simply slaughtered. Readers can form their own opinions about the most horrible job in ancient Greece and Rome as they learn surprising information about time-consuming, smelly, and dangerous tasks. Historical images and illustrations highlight horrible laundry practices, food preparation, and living conditions of the time. No detail is too gross to include!
