Slavery, a fully fledged economic system.

Ancient Rome was home to one of the largest slave systems in the world. It is estimated that there were between 6 and 10 million slaves, for a total population of 50 to 60 million people. Slavery was in fact what made the economic ambitions of ancient Rome possible.
The exhibition traces the history of the revolt led by Spartacus in 73 and 71 BC to describe this far ranging system. It features some 250 archaeological finds with an immersive and fun audio-visual narrative.
