Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Discover the world of the ancient Greeks — their myths and legends, heroes and gods and the legacy of their civilization. Here is a spectacular and informative guide to the glories of ancient Greece. Superb color photographs of armor, jewelry, temples and much more offer a unique "eyewitness" view of the history, daily life, beliefs and achievements of the ancient Greek civilization. See the golden mask of Agamemnon, the luxurious palaces of Crete, an armed hoplite ready to do battle, the Parthenon Frieze, what a Greek family wore, and what the inside of a Greek farmhouse looked like. Learn how Greek athletes did the long jump, how Odysseus escaped from the cave of the Cyclops, how to play the Greek game of kottabos, who discovered Troy, and why Socrates drank hemlock. Discover the origins of the Hippocratic oath, what toys Greek children played with, the layout of a typical Greek home, the range of the conquests of Alexander the Great, who the Greek gods were, and much, much more!

Synopsis:

This look at the culture that most influenced Western society tells how the Greeks made war and worshiped their gods, and examines their legacy of science, medicine, philosophy and art. Full-color photos.
