"Critical reading for anyone wanting to take a deep dive into Classical Greek culture and history. This tour will take readers from the lost civilizations of Minoa, through the Trojan war, to Sparta's "its complicated" relationship with Athens and Greece's golden age, punctuated by Alexander the Great's unifying campaign. All the while delving into the detailed worlds of War, politics, religion, art, culture, philosophy, drama and science, flawlessly narrated in Durrant's engaging style."
