Ancient Greece comes alive in this vibrant portrait of the daily lives of ordinary people: men and women, children and the elderly, slaves and foreigners, rich and poor. Robert Garland presents a wealth of fascinating, sometimes surprising information about our spiritual, cultural and intellectual ancestors during this influential period. Did Greeks share our notion of romantic love? Why was it more desirable to be a slave than a day labourer? Were they really more cultivated than we are? Unique and descriptive, this attractive volume includes images throughout, as well as maps.
