The glory of Ancient Greece is all around us, even in the twenty-first century, because Greece was the cradle of Western civilization. We know about the gods and their legends—Zeus, Athene, Apollo, Ares, Aphrodite—and their heroes, both legendary (Heracles) and historical (Alexander the Great). Architecture, mathematics, politics, philosophy, observation of nature and the cosmos, and much more emerged in Ancient Greece. Hugh Griffith’s entertaining but informative account of the people and the history places it all in perspective. This is an outstanding introduction for younger listeners.
