WHAT WOULD MY LIFE HAVE BEEN IF I HAD LIVE IN AN ANCIENT TIME?
I can describe my life in a few simple words. It is a beautiful ordinary life, maybe even a boring life and it is a life that contents me at this moment. I proceed from an usual family and I am the only child for my parents. I have eighteen years old and soon I will take my life in my own hands and I am going to create my own future just like I want.
Now I am happy and the most important thing is that I have the possibility to realize my future in the way I want, but I keep ask myself how my life would have been if I had lived in another period of time or in another place.
I imagine that no matter what ages I would have lived or indifferent in what place I would have stayed, I would have been from the middle social group, I would have made part of the middle social rank.
I wouldn’t have had invaluable fortunes or richness, but I wouldn’t have come from a poor family either, maybe only if I had lived in the Middle Age. Then people were divided in two; there were extremely poor people or extremely rich people. There wasn’t the middle social rank.
If I had lived in Antiquity, my statute as woman would have been the statute of a housewife or of a housekeeper. In Antiquity agriculture were very important so, that means I would have worked with my family the land to obtain nourishment day by day.
Marriage was, in that period of time, very important for the society, so I would have got married at a tender age and I would have had as many children as possible. The birth rate was important in that period of time for the outliving of society, because death was at every single step.
Medicine was undeveloped so the women had to know how to treat all the family members and she had to know how to take care the old people from the house with all kind of medicinal herbs.
I would have cooked what my husband would probably have brought me home and I would have manufactured the clothes for my family, by my own, from lambskin or gout hair and in many cases from vegetable fibres.
Certainly I would have worn some kind of long simple dresses that would have reached my ankles. In summers my husband would have worn all around his haunch some kind of short skirts and he would have had his bust naked, like all the other men. In winter men and women would have worn sheepskin coats.
Probably I would have worn sandals made by bark or from leather, if I would have proceeded from a rich family.
If I hadn’t been married, I would probably have been taken to a temple to become some kind of nun and to be in the service of ancient goods and priests, but I would have been very young, maybe I would have been ten or eleven years old or maybe younger because I would have been chaste. But if I wouldn’t have become an ancient good’s servant and I wouldn’t have been married either, then I would certainly have been taken to a very rich family to serve the family, only then I would be some kind of slave and I wouldn’t have done nothing without the rich family’s permission.
I would have been an ancient woman I would prefer to be a woman from Ancient
Egypt, because although the statute of an ancient
The women could took any position in the society ever to become leaders and to manage a whole territory, so if I had been a woman from Egypt I wouldn’t have depended by man like the other women from ancient times.
would have loved to be a queen but then I would have accepted than my king to
have more than one wife. The king was the only one from ancient
guess I would have loved to live in ancient
Men were very interested about politics and administrative problems so I think that if I had been an ordinary woman I would have stayed at home in order to take care of children and to manage the household. I would have been preparing the food from vegetables and meat but usually from fish and fruits. Also I believe I would have manufactured, with other women, clothes and shoes.
If I had had a wealth family I would probably have liked to have servants in order to do the house charge under my supervision.
If I had
been a servant I would have been almost necked but if I had been a dancer, I
would certainly have been completely necked, and that thing doesn’t make me
feel so conformable not even now when I just imagine a life in ancient
In that period of time I would have taken part to the birth of jewels that looks like jewels from our days. It appeared diadems, bracelets, rings, necklaces, pectorals, (especially for men), all made by gold and it appeared colored ribbons and many other beautiful kind of jewels. I would have taken part at the birth of fashion and make-up and not only that but I would have seen how the beauty standards are created.
If I had had a daughter and I would have been a queen, I would have certainly thought her every thing what a woman need to know to become a powerful leader, loved and appreciated by her people. Also I would have loved to be spoiled all day long by my servants and I would have taken long baths in milk or in the finest water with flower petals and fruits perfumes.
I would have also had my own pyramid and believe me that I would certainly have enjoyed that thing.
I believe that indifferent in what period of time or indifferent in what place I would have lived, I would have been happy, because I am a person that enjoys every little thing that life offers. For me not the period of time or not the place or not even the social statute is important, for me is important to be alive and to have little joys in my life.
