What is the history of the song the Saint Stephen day murders?

Well, I have never heard the song, but Stephen in the Bible was (I believe) the disciple who replaced Judas and he was given the job of feeding the poor and widows,etc. But some people didn't like that because he also preached about Jesus. So they threw rocks at him until he died. (This is called stoning someone.) Stephen became the first Christian martyr but there would be many to follow him. If you want more information on Stephen and who he believed in so much that he would die for him (Jesus) just read the Bible. It may be in Romans or Acts. ******************************* To add to the above, the song by Elvis Costello is a tongue in cheek celebration of the murders we would all like to commit on St. Stephen's Day (December 26) after all the feasting and merrymaking of too many drunken relatives hanging around the house at Christmastide has begun to grow exceedingly bothersome. ;)

Why do you have less evidence about the poor Romans than the rich Romans?

Since whatever the poor used must have been something that could not endure staying the same shape for years and years to come. And because when whoever took over the Romans they kept the good stuff ( Rich romans houses and mansions...) and destroyed the things they didn't need ( poor people things) Addition Look for books by Mary Beard on the excavations at Pompeii. For example the contents of the sewers can be examined to find what the rich and poor ate. She says the poor were surprisingly well fed.
