From Homer's Iliad to a farmer's hard life in the hilly farmlands near Athens, here's an introduction to daily life in Greece 2,500 years ago. Young readers will learn about early democracy, city-states, warfare, religion, and the history of the region. But they will also read about a chariotrace, see a cutaway of a typical home, join the bride and groom at a wedding feast, and attend a play at a theater built into a hillside. With color illustrations on every page, this concise and fact-filled introduction to ancient Greece will please even the most reluctant of readers.
