This packet provides an overview of Greek civilization from the Golden Age of Athens to the rise of Alexander the Great. Special emphasis is given to the sociology of life in Ancient Greece—the lives of ordinary women, children, families, and soldiers—as well as to the great political, cultural, and intellectual achievements which shaped the course of the Western world. The birth of science and philosophy are among the events vividly depicted in this richly illustrated text. Challenging map exercises and review questions encourage meaningful reflection and historical analysis. Complete the unit with the included test and answer key.
