Splendid manual on Roman Culture.
A good companion for teachers of Latin.
In its first chapters deals with tria nomina, types of marriages and houses among other points. This book provides exercises to work on the topics dealt in lessons. Of course, there are some illustrations of bedrooms (cubicula) in semidetached houses (domus).
A curiosity about tria nomina was the assumption that women didn´t have praenomen as a rule. Every free-born male had at least praenomen and nomen (first name and last name)
