This introduction to ancient Greece focuses on key people, places and events in its cultural development from the Bronze Age world of the Mycenaeans, through the classical age of fifth-century Athens and Alexander the Great's conquests, to the Byzantine era which lasted until 1453. Purkis discusses excerpts from a range of ancient texts and identifies notable features of sites that can be visited today, such as the theatre at Epidaurus and the Athenian Acropolis.
