Description:
The study of the culture of the ancient Greeks and Romans, Classics takes in all aspects of their life and learning, from the languages and literature, philosophy, art, and much more besides. This is an accessible and enjoyable look back at Classical civilization, how they lived, and how many aspects of our own daily lives have been directly influenced by theirs, from roads and concrete, to central heating, the 12-month calendar, cranes, and even the modern-day favorite, pizza! This small but authoritative book will take you on a journey through this lost world, showing you that even a basic knowledge of Classics is not only essential, but also incredibly fascinating.
