Ancient Greece is an interesting historical book Edited by Michael Anderson This book mostly talks about how they lived, their origins, and what they did back then It was founded between 800 B.C and 500 B.C Did you know that the first Ancient Greek civilisations were formed nearly 4,000 years ago The Ancient Greek Empire spread from Greece through Europe and in 800 BC, the Greeks started to split their land into city states All of the city states had its own laws and rulers Also, The Greeks had fears about food, some wouldn t eat beans because they thought they contained the souls of the dead Also, The Greeks often ate dinner while lying on their sides The Ancient Greeks had lots of stories to help them learn about their world and culture, they had a lot of tales about their gods and monsters like Cerberus, a three headed dog that guarded the gates to the underworld, Medusa, a monster whose look could turn people to stone, and the Cyclops who had one eye in the middle of its forehead Also, did you know that events at the Greek s Olympics include long jump, wrestling, javelin, boxing, discus and chariot racing, and there were hardly any rules, and they had to be completely all naked The best part of the book Ancient Greece was The Achievements of the Ancient Greece I liked it because it told us about all the achievement and growth of Ancient Greece Well, did you know that Ancient Greece were the ones that discovered Literature, Poetry, Drama, Tragedy, Comedy, History, Philosophy, Art, Sculpture, Painting, Architecture, Mathematics, Theatre, the Olympics, The Hippocratic Oath, Geometry, the screw, the marathon, and science From the information of the book, the reader learns a lot about Ancient Greece and how they used to live thousands of years ago I also learned a lot of strange facts about them and the strangest one was the fact that they didn t eat beans because they thought that they contained the souls of the dead The most exciting episode in the book was when I read about The Achievements of the Ancient Greece because it had this list of all the things that they discovered Also, their achievement and their success However, the most disappointing moment in this book was when this book had ended because honestly, I really enjoyed the book It also inspired me to readhistorical informational books I would recommend this book to all the people who love history because this book showed a lot of fantastic facts about Ancient Greece and it was really interesting to read Also, I would recommend this book to all ages because it s an informational book and it was very fun to read A little repetitive in places, especially if you read the pull out poster first before the book, but with lots of difficult to remember Greek words, names and places, this isn t such a bad thing The photos are all very relevant and interesting I learned a fair bit, such as Pythagoras not eating beans because he believed people were reincarnated as seeds, and I m far older than the target audience, so I guess a school pupil would find lots of interest therein Immaculately proofread too I boug A little repetitive in places, especially if you read
