Summary
In Eureka!, Peter Jones tells their epic story as he expertly guides the reader through the key historical events - from the Trojan War through the wars against the Persians, to the Athenian Empire, the conflict with Sparta, and on through the Byzantine Empire. Along the way he introduces the major figures of the age, including Homer, Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Alexander the Great, Euclid and Archimedes, explores the Greek myths, provides a glimpse of everyday life in ancient times and shows us the very foundations of Western culture. It is a compelling tale unmatchable in its vividness, scope and variety."
