My Life as a Roman Slave.

Extracts from this document...


Last night while sleeping I had a flashback from 2 years ago during the war between Rome and Parthia in 60 A.D. The war broke out when Parthia invaded the Iberian Peninsula so Nero the emperor of Rome attacked Thracia. Soon all of Thracia was filled with roman soldiers. My mom was teaching me how to write when 2 soldiers broke into our small house and took me and my mom. One of the soldiers took me and the other took my mom.
