The ancient Greeks almost single-handedly created Western civilization, and numerous political, social, artistic, and military customs and ideas taken for granted today arose within the context of everyday Greek life. This title examines life in the Greek city-states, family structure, duties to the community, religious beliefs, sports and other leisure activities, warfare, and more.
