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.

In The Ancient Greeks by Charles Freeman, detailed drawings of artifacts, architecture, weaponry, statuary and dozens of other traditional elements mix with succinct text on society, economy, government, women's roles and even the early Olympics. Other titles in the series include The Romans by John Haywood; The Egyptians by Neil Grant; and going even further back in time, Prehistoric Life by Dougal Dixon. ) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
