Ancient Greece: The Dawn of the Western World sets out to relate the story of ancient Greece, its civilization, culture, and art, in a way no publication has ever done before. The book takes readers on a journey of discovery, using more than 1000 photographs of outstanding quality, many of them never before published. The book opens with a brief but complete history of Hellas, from its origins through the Roman conquest, and then moves on to an exploration of how the ancient Greeks lived - the homes they dwelled in, the jewelry they wore, the religions they practiced, the dramas they performed, the wars they fought, the games they played.
