  1. Im having trouble finding info for the roman republic project and i am a roman farmer

    OK. There is an eBook that will help you a lot. It's called The Romans: New Perspectives. Log into Destiny, the online catalog, with your school user name and password. Search for Roman Republic. Click on the Digital Resources tab - not the first Titles tab. Click the "Next" button until you find the book. Search for Farming within the title - it's on page 97. That will help you better understand what farming was like in Rome. It goes from 97 to 102, but then you need to understand enough about the Roman Republic (not Empire) to figure out how a farmer might feel about the republic.

    Okay thanks so much!
