Full description for Daily Life in the Hellenistic Age
The Hellenistic world, ushered into existance by Alexander the Great, took in a vast region, stretching from Iraq in the east to Sicily in the west. Within this area, society was multicultural but the dominant culture was Greek, developed from the culture of classical Greece, and carrying on the legacy of classical Greece in the visual arts, literature, science, technology, and daily life. Narrative chapters guide the reader though the vast conquered lands of Hellenistic Greece, exploring marriage customs; festivals, sports, and spectacles; symposia (drinking parties); the agricultural and urban components of the polis (city-state); food; drink; education; science; technology; and the legacy of the Hellenistic age in the modern world.
