Sail on an Athenian ship, discover how the philosopher Socrates ended up in a prison cell, and find out why young Athenians burned their toys in this delightful recreation of life in 5th-century B.C. Ancient Greece features the illustrations of Peter Connolly, a world-renowned artist of the ancient world, and artifacts, maps, and photographs from the region. All aspects of life in the city are revealed, as we see Athenians in their homes, at the theatre, at work, at worship, and at play. A fascinating and accessible exploration of the most advanced culture of the ancient world, Ancient Greece is a perfect introduction for children ages eight and up.
