Romans were Mediterranean comment

Best Answer - Chosen by Asker
The Romans (those of Mediterranean ancestry...actually you could be a Roman and not Italian!) averaged about 5ft 6, a few inches shorter than today. Germanics were generally a few inches bigger than the average Roman, between 5ft 8 and 6 foot. It is a myth that every one in ancient times was short, most were only fractionally smaller than people now and many were just as tall, there were just less really big people on average. It was in the middle ages that people got smaller, due to overcrowded towns and poorer diets.
