This is one of two new titles from the acclaimed master of recreating the ancient world. Peter Connolly's superb illustrations bring to life the world of ancient Greece, in the 5th century BC, when Athens was home to some of the greatest artists and thinkers in history. All aspects of life in the city are revealed, as we watch Athenians in their homes, at the theatre, at work, at worship and at play. Perfect to support homework for children aged 8+ .
