Ancient Greeks by Dr Jen Green


Ancient Greeks by Dr Jen Green

Gossip, scandal, badly behaved rulers - if you thought that celebrity culture was a symptom of the 21st century, think again. This is an irreverent but fact-packed look at the ancient Greeks, with a colourful cast of celebrity characters and a keen awareness of what was 'on trend' and what was not, in where people lived, how they kept healthy and how they behaved, at war, at work and at leisure.


A new non-fiction series which has a magazine approach to Ancient History... beautifully illustrated and the presentation is dynamic and fun. School Librarian
