The Greenwood Encyclopedia of Daily Life: The ancient world
Joyce E. Salisbury
Greenwood Press, 2004 - History, Ancient - 642 pages
What did people around the world and over the centuries eat, wear, use? What did they hope, invent, sing? The unnoticed yet essential details of everyday life have shaped history - and continue to shape our lives today. Building on Greenwood's landmark Daily Life through History series, this exuberant new encyclopedia allows both armchair readers and students of history, the arts, and social studies to travel through time and space. Depth of content and ease of use are the keynotes. Each of the six chronological volumes is organized in broad sections that span the realm of everyday life: economic life; domestic life; intellectual life; material life; political life; recreational life; and religious life. - Back cover.
