Synopsis

The Ancient Greeks Their Lives and Their World by Alexandra Villing

The Ancient Greeks introduces children to the people of the ancient Greek world. This is a highly visual resource book, packed with authentic pictures of real Greek places, things and people. It shows at first hand how the people of the ancient Greek city-states lived and worked and the legacy they left for future generations. This attractively designed book illustrates all kinds of ancient Greek people and the objects they made and used. The text describes and explains the images and encourages children to explore the photographs in detail. A special feature is the quotations from ancient Greek sources ranging from the works of historians, philosophers and dramatists to personal letters that allow children to read about the Greeks in their own words. Children will enjoy discovering how the people of ancient Greece lived, worked and played, and at the same time will learn to look critically and carefully at objects and pictures from the past, just as archaeologists do.
