This Halcyon Classics ebook contains both volumes of Herodotus of Halicarnassus' HISTORIES, his inquiries into the Greco-Persian Wars which occurred in 490 and 480-479 BC. Aside from the causes of the wars, Herodotus also discusses the peoples and lands known to the Greeks, often with a fanciful flair.

Herodotus of Halicarnassus lived in the 5th century BC (c. 484 BC – c. 425 BC) and is regarded as the "Father of History" in Western culture. He was the first historian known to collect his materials systematically, test their accuracy to a certain extent and arrange them in a well-constructed narrative.
