Overview

An A-Z survey of Greek history, culture, and civilization from its earliest archaeological remains until the Battle of Actium (31 B.C.E.), when Greek civilization merged with Roman to become Greco-Roman civilization.

The 315 essays in Ancient Greece include general overviews of art and architecture, daily life and customs, death and burial, education and training, government and law, language and literature, medicine and health, navigation and transportation, the performing arts, religion and ritual, science, settlements and social structure, sorts and entertainment, technology, trade and commerce, war and weapons, women's life and writing systems. Biographical entries cover statesmen, military leaders, writers, and philosophers. Descriptive entries examine literature, battles, and philosophical movements.
