Book Description:
This study focuses on the colourful period of the Peisistratid tyranny in Athens. During these exciting years the great festivals were established, monumental buildings were erected, the population grew rapidly and there was lively progress in all the arts. This study considers the artistic, archaeological and literary evidence for the period. Athens is seen largely through the eyes of Herodotus, the 'Father of History', and we can observe the foundations being laid for the growth of democracy in the following century. List of Illustrations 1. Homer and Heroes 2. The Evidence 3. Early Athens 4. Solon 5. Third Time Lucky 6. The Rivals 7. The Golden Age 8. Athenian Life and Art 9. The Final Years Suggestions for Further Study Suggestions for Further Reading
