House in Rome
As the population grew, the social structure developed. Many things such as levels of society, homes and slaves were formed. There were many levels of society in the following order: the Imperial Domus, the senators, the equestria, the commons, the freed people and then the slaves. For the houses in ancient Rome, poor people lived in an insulae and rich lived in a Domus (a type of house occupied by the upper class). Some people even lived in a town house or an apartment. Most owners of the houses were kind to family members and treated their slaves fairly. Lots of other people were mean to their slaves. Slaves were people that were sold at auctions. Their owners often beat them but sometimes slaves were set free if they were working well. As more and more people came, they needed ways to obtain food.
