Hi! My name is Ramtha and I’m an Etruscan girl 9 years of age. My mother puts me in charge of watching our sheep while they are grazing. Did you know you can take the anklebone of a sheep and make it into a piece for gaming? My friends and I like to play with these astragali.

Salve! I am a Roman girl 9 years old named Fulvia. I love to help my family by fetching water from the well each day. My father measured the depth of the well by dropping an object on a rope to the bottom, and it is about 100 Roman feet deep.
Salvete, omnes! My name is Lucius and I am an 8-year-old Roman boy from Cetamura. I often go up to the village well to meet my friends. We have fun chasing chickens and playing with dice or a ball.

Buon giorno! That is how you say “Good morning” in Italian. My name is Imilda and I am a 10- year-old girl from medieval Italy. Often I help in the orchards to pick fruit for the whole family or I join my mother to bake bread.
Hi there! My name is Rodolfo, and I’m a 12-year-old boy from the beautiful country of Italy. My family lives in a small hilltop castle and try to provide a good education for me. Sometimes I go to a school in the nearby city of Siena, where I have learned to read and write. Our books feature beautiful handwritten letters. Addio, farewell!
