Culture of Athens (Ancient Cultures and Civilizations)
Athens gave the world the Olympics, philosophy, and beautiful architecture, but there's more to this ancient civilization than the facts everyone knows. This title provides a comprehensive look at the culture of Athens, including how it became a city-state, its rise to power within the Roman Empire, and important military conquests and successes. The social studies-rich text also explores daily life in Athens, family structure, religion, and education. Relatable topics inspire readers to draw connections between life in the past and the present, while sidebars, fact boxes, and Learn More features encourage further learning.
