Barbara F. McManus, The College of New Rochelle. Role-Playing Game in VRoma.
Students can imaginatively experience the lives of lower-class, working Romans, both female and male, by assuming the personalities of real people in the city of Rome, people known to us now only though inscriptions but once living, breathing Romans.

María Concepción Palomo Ramos, Librarian and Researcher, Centro de Estudios de la Mujer, Universidad de Salamanca (España). Bibliography in Spanish.
A compilation of books and articles in Spanish on ancient women.

Ann R. Raia, Anne Leen, Barbara F. MCManus, Roman Funerary Inscriptions Project.” In this activity students explore the genre of epigraphy in search of Roman women, who are represented on funerary monuments through sculpture and writing that is not exclusively male and elite. This project (including instructions, monument options, bibliography, model student projects) is focused on text and material culture. It has been reported successful with students in intermediate Latin classes at three colleges.

Janet Stephens, Independent Scholar and Hair Archaeologist. Ancient Hairstyle Recreation.
This webpage, linked to the Worlds of Body and State, illustrates, through ancient artifacts and modern recreation, some of the hairstyles made popular by Roman empresses. The author offers links to videos that demonstrate the tools and process of creating the hairstyles worn by Agrippina Minor and Julia Domna, as well as a link to her online videos on forensic hairstyling.
