Overview

William Davis was Professor of Ancient History at the University of Minnesota. What if we could be transported back to the fourth century BC and have an intelligent tour guide show us the city? That is what Davis attempts do to in this charming book. The year 360 B C was chosen for the tour, since that was when Athens was at her architectural height and the social and civic life was flourishing. The democratic constitution was in place and the decadence that would follow had not yet taken hold. An in depth knowledge of ancient Athens is not required to enjoy this travel journey.
