Ancient Greece

This informative book covers the life stories of Homer, Sappho, Pythagoras, Aeschylus, Pericles, Socrates, Hippocrates, Alexander and Archimedes. Each person represents a different aspect of Greek civilisation. For example, Homer and Sappho were great poets, Aeschylus was a great playwright. Hippocrates was a doctor and Archimedes was a great scientist. All of these people made discoveries that still affect our lives today.

Spanning ancient Greek history from 800 BC until 146 BC when the Romans conquered Greece, this book tells the story of the great civilization through the lives of nine ancient Greeks who each represent a different aspect of its history.
