Description

Offering a lively miscellany as an alternative to the Roman legions razing cities image of ancient history, Jane Hood delves into the culture, mythology and philosophy of ancient Greece, Rome and Egypt to reveal the 'world of lust, learning, fighting, food, joy and death that the ancients took part in' and shows that 'They really were a lot like us. They just didn't have an iPhone.'
