Publisher Comments:

The myths of the ancient Greeks have inspired us for thousands of years. Where did the famous stories of the battles of their gods develop and spread across the world? The celebrated classicist Robin Lane Fox draws on a lifetime's knowledge of the ancient world, and on his own travels, answering this question by pursuing it through the age of Homer. His acclaimed history explores how the intrepid seafarers of eighth-century Greece sailed around the Mediterranean, encountering strange new sights--volcanic mountains, vaporous springs, huge prehistoric bones--and weaving them into the myths of gods, monsters and heroes that would become the cornerstone of Western civilization.
