With a list of characters from
Achilles to Zeus, and all the gods and mortals in between, The Ancient Greek World is one of the most comprehensive history
textbooks on one of the most momentous civilizations in history.
The Greeks are considered the first
people in the ancient Western world to record their own history, and remnants
of their cultural, philosophical, political and architectural advances remain
to this day. Homer, Sophocles, Aeschylus, Socrates, Aristotle and Plato set the
ground rules for modern literature, theater and philosophy. The Parthenon still
stands as an example of structural ingenuity. And many countries still practice

Greeks believed they were an exceptional people, and their influence is still
present today. Download and start listening now!
