4.0 out of 5 stars A great book on ancient Greece 9 April 2009
By Helen M. Chirivas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A great book on what life might have been like in ancient Greece. We get a sense of how ordinary lives were lived, how cities were organized, including industries etc. You will learn details about armor, as well as changing clothing and even hair-styles through the years. This book, like so many others, nonetheless cannot explain how a relatively simple, not particularly wealthy culture, could manage to produce enough excess capital with which to underwrite so many special works of art and architecture -- in other words, how they got so much from so little. In fact, at its peak, it wasn't even a cohesive country as we know it, or part of an empire -- it was a fragmented series of tiny city-states. The mystery is how these small states, which could not possibly have had much excess money or time at their disposal, managed to produce not only original thinkers, but highly refined structures and works of art.
