In Roman times did people live over 100?

  1. No, it would have been extremely unlikely for people to live to 100 during Roman Times. In fact, life expectancy during this time, taking into account infact mortality, was around 25 – 30 years old. Life expectancy greatly increased with the introduction of sewers which greatly reduced the spread of disease.

  2. Life expectancy in 1900 was approximately 30 years. However, many people lived into their 60’s and 70’s. The fact is that the people who survive past childhood, don’t die in war, and are not in extreme poverty from almost all time periods survive quite a bit past 25 or 30 years of age.
