On average, how tall were the Romans? Men and women?
In general, most Roman men and women were not considerably shorter than the average today, but different regions would have had different averages. In a study of over nearly 1000 male bodies who were buried from between 500 BC and 500 AD, the average height was found to be around 5’5’’.
This again would vary within different regions, as the average height of the people of Northern Europe would be much higher (5’ 8") and would also depend on the diet and lifestyle of the people within each region. Trying to find the average height of Roman women is a similar case, with an average of around 5’ 3" but this is also debatable.
