Description
  • Why did the Egyptians make mummies?
  • Why did Sparta need a brutal secret police force?
  • Why were gladiators murders and heroes?

This social studies resource book answers these questions and explores the lives of the people of Ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome. It looks in particular at the social controls that affected these people in the past and compares them with those operating in our society today. There is a focus on values and religion, on government and on the social rituals of each society. The roles and expectations of women and children in these societies are also emphasised, in contrast with earlier books on the subject.

Ancients Alive is written and illustrated in a lively and contemporary style. It will provide a fascinating and successful module of study for students and teachers alike.
