15 step-by-step projects enable you to recreate the past. Step back in time to Ancient Greece and discover the spectacular achievements of an adventurous civilization. Learn about the birth of the theatre and arts; sports and the Olympic games; science and the beginnings of modern medicine and philosophy; trade, travel, weapons and warfare; and much much more. Delve into everyday life to find out what the Greeks ate, where they lived and what clothes were fashionable. Find out about the gods they worshipped, the heroes they admired and the politicians who made history. Visit an amphitheatre, wander past a market stall and witness the battles they fought. A selection of 15 practical projects helps to bring the past alive - reconstruct the Parthenon, make a comic mask and learn the Ancient Greek alphabet. The projects are shown in specially-commissioned step-by-step photography and will make learning stimulating, exciting and fun, either at home or in the classroom.
