Slaves were known mainly as working in the fields. But it wasnt until cotton became popular (1800's) that they began that. They were often used to cook for their masters, complete house work, feed animals on the farm, keep land clean, hunt for food, gather fire wood. Mainly anything that there master wanted them to do

There was no majority of slaves in ancient Rome ethnically. Roman slaves came from all over the empire and beyond its borders. However as far as the work force was concerned, the majority of slaves were the public slaves, who could work on anything from the many building projects in the city to doing clerical work.There was no majority of slaves in ancient Rome ethnically.
