Slave life in ancient Egypt, was contradictory. Many slaves in ancient Egypt performed the role of servants in the house of the wealthy. They were usually fairly treated, adequately clothed and well fed. Remember there were no modern labor saving devices. Every household job had to be done by hand. It was hard graft.

Those who were less fortunate were forced to do humiliating, degrading and often dangerous work such as working on the land, digging canals, building monuments, quarrying and worst of all working in the mines. They were at the mercy of tough overseers. Food was pretty basic and they were usually naked.

The egyptians ate figs, dates, bread, pomegranates, honey, peas, beans, and fish.

A slave was regarded mostly like a walking pile of dirt. They were considered very low in status, and most usually never even left their plantations.

The life of a slave in ancient Rome depended upon the wealth and temperament of his owner. It also depended on the slave's location. For example, a city slave had a much easier life than a rural slave because the work load was different. On the whole, the lives of Roman slaves, especially the urban ones, was much easier than the lives of slaves in other cultures. The Roman slaves also had the very real possibility of gaining their freedom, which other cultures did not offer.
