Considering Paul is imprisoned so much, I expected to find a thread on this on PB, but I couldn't! I also couldn't find many resources in general on what a Roman prison was at all. Was it a place where they were chained, unfed by all but their family? Or, was it fairly free access? Considering the long list of people who Paul associates with in his epistles while in prison, that would seem to be the case, but what was it like?

To be clearer, Acts 28:30 shows that Paul lived on his own expense, and I have heard a great deal on the internet about prisons being horrible, but where should I look for a good introduction?
