Daily life and living situation

Wall frescoes and floor mosaics, water lines and heating systems are conveniences and accomplishments indicating the high standard of living in the Rome Empire and attest to the personal prosperity of the people who once had their homes in the civilian city quarter of Carnuntum. Everyday objects left behind in these houses tell us their stories more than 1,700 years later and bring to life the everyday living situation of the ancient citizens of Carnuntum.

The Favor of the Gods

The Romans worshiped a multitude of deities and ascribed various spheres of action to them. Religious ceremonies dominated all central events in people’s personal lives, such as birth, marriage and death. Superstitions and magic also played a major role in Roman society.
