Overview

The Legend of Odysseus (Rebuilding the Past Series) by Peter Connoly

The adventures of Greek classical literature's greatest heroes are vividly described in this superb retelling of stories from Homer. The narrative opens with Odysseus hunting wild boar on Ithaca, and continues with his exploits in the Trojan War, and the perils of his fantastic voyage home.
Stunningly illustrated, the story is interspersed with a wealth of historical information about the world in which it is supposed the Trojan Wars took place. There are maps, photographs, and detailed reconstructions of places and buildings in the text, such as Old Nestor's palace at Pylos, and of course the city of Troy itself. Also presented is a wealth of archaeological evidence of the everyday life of the period: costume, domestic practices, religious rites, shipbuilding and armour-making.
