Plebeians there, Patricians Here.

The theme of this exhibition is the roman social structure. It will talk about how different classes were treated and how the division was organized. The social class was divided either into slaves or two other groups which where plebeians and patricians. Patricians would be the upper class, people such as wealthy land owners would be in the patricians group. Plebeians would be the lower class which would be normal people in Rome. The separations meant that they would be completely separated. Plebeians could only marry people form their social class and so forth. The pictures displayed in this project are connected to the idea of social structures because they will show the different lives people had depending on their social class and the pictures will also show the differences between the way people were treated.  Social structure is an important topic to talk about because  now a days we don't see that much of social classes. And it will also teach us why things happened and why they happened. Social structures where what shaped all Rome so without them Rome would be completely different and that is why we have to learn about the importance of it. It deserves to be a a subject of exhibition because without it Rome wouldn't have been so disciplined and organized so many things would not have happened if it weren't for the social structure. People would respect the social structure and they would do whatever it was appropriate to do in their class. Without that social structure people would have been all over the place and would have been doing whatever they pleased to do and they would have caused the downfall to come much faster.
