We think of Ancient Greece as the birthplace of democracy and a breeding ground for pioneering philosophers, but what was life really like in a Greek city-state?

Who could vote in an election in Athens? What kind of plays did people see at the theatre? How much impact did gods and myths have on the lives of the ancient Greeks?

Why were neighbouring states so often at war?30-Second Ancient Greece presents a unique insight into one of the most creative and influential civilizations, where military might and architectural brilliance flourished alongside great rhetoric and spellbinding stories of heroes.

From temples and oracles to soldiers and slavery, from beautiful pottery to tragic drama, this is the key to understanding the 50 crucial ideas and innovations that developed and defined one of the world's greatest civilizations.
