Discover life and culture in the brilliant Greece during its classical period; its fragmented political system, and the rights of citizens, education, arts and leisure, housing and urbanism, ceremonies and mythology, travel, food, and the military world. A rigorous and didactic tour thorugh wisdom, customs, and traditions from the cradle of Western civilisation.
Greece is the land of gods and heroes, Kings and Princes, and the birthplace of one of the most brilliant civilizations in antiquity. But what do we know of their daily chores? What were they engaged in? Where were they living? How did they enjoy themselves? How did gods influence upon citizens? In Brief history of everyday life in Ancient Greece, the reader will be able to learn other aspects that appear as important as wars and battles but which are often unnoticed, or not taken into account, since all the limelight usually focuses on the political and military events.
