What was it like to live in ancient Greece? It was a world of gods and goddesses, of fabulous pageantry and splendor, and of beauty and grace. Even though ancient Greek civilization was at its peak thousands of years ago, it is still very much alive. People still read the story of Odysseus and his long journey home, study Greek society because it was the birthplace of democracy, and even visit modern Greece to walk among the ruins of once-glorious buildings like the Parthenon. What was it like to be a boy or girl there in ancient times? What did they eat? How did they dress? What did they do for fun? The answers to these questions might surprise you!
