The glory that was Greece springs to life in this well-researched educational coloring book that focuses on the "golden age" of Athens in the 5th and 4th centuries B. C. Over 40 detailed illustrations depict numerous aspects of Greek life and culture: the building of the Parthenon, Solon the lawgiver addressing his countrymen, children playing games, a performance of Oedipus Rex, the Olympian games, Socrates at his trial, a torchlight wedding procession, Aristotle tutoring the young Alexander of Macedonia and many more.

The introduction and informative captions describe Greek civilization of this period and set each individual scene, providing much information on art, culture, government, costumes, daily life and activities, historical events and figures and other parts of Greek life. This book offers a wonderful opportunity for colorists of all ages to have fun coloring while learning important facts about how life was lived 2,500 years ago in the cradle of Western civilization.
