The slaves’ room has been discovered in a villa in Civita Giuliana, a suburb of Pompeii. Three wooden beds and eight amphorae, vessels used for storage, were among the objects found.
In a press release, Gabriel Zuchtriegel, director of the Pompeii Archaeological Park, said: “This is a window into the precarious reality of people who seldom appear in historical sources, that were written almost exclusively by men belonging to the elite.”
