Meet the people of ancient Greece, learn how they lived and worked, and see the sorts of objects they made and used. In profiling a wide range of people from this ancient society—from religious and government leaders to farmers, soldiers, and artisans to women and children—the author brings to life a distant and fascinating world. The lively text and wealth of illustrations of ancient Greek artworks and artifacts, including vases, statuary, religious objects, jewelry, and weapons, make this the perfect introduction to an ancient society that left such an extraordinary legacy to Western civilization.
Ages twelve and up.
