Ancient Greece - Anne Pearson

Dorling Kindersley / Eyewitness
Here is a spectacular and informative guide to the glories of Ancient Greece, now in a revised paperback edition
The civilization of the Ancient Greeks is one of the most fertile the world has ever known, and the influence of their flourishing arts, philosophy and political ideas can still be seen today. This collection of stunning photographs brings that magnificent past vividly to life.
Starting with Minoan and Mycenaean cultures, the book goes on to look at the siege of Troy, the Golden Age of Athens, the warlike Spartans, and the campaigns of Alexander the Great. It features a Greek family in everyday costume, a hoplite armed for battle, a cutaway model of a Greek farmhouse, exquisite jewellery, and painted vases depicting musicians, dancers, athletes, and the gods that dominated Greek life.
Produced in association with the British Museum, London, Ancient Greece is a unique and absorbing introduction to a glorious civilization.
— Superb colour photographs of armour, jewellery, temples, and much more, offer a unique ‘eyewitness’ view of the history, daily life, beliefs, and achievements of the Ancient Greek civilization
— See the golden ‘Mask of Agamemnon’; the luxurious palaces of Crete; an armed hoplite ready to do battle; the Parthenon Frieze; what a Greek family wore; what the inside of a Greek farmhouse looked like
— Learn how Greek athletes did the long jump; how Odysseus escaped from the cave of the Cyclops; how to play the Greek game of kottabos; who discovered Troy; why Socrates drank hemlock
— Discover the origins of the Hippocratic Oath; what toys Greek children played with; the layout of a typical Greek home; the range of the conquests of Alexander the Great; who the Greek gods were
