Classics: A Very Short Introduction

Last week I read the book: Classics: A Very Short Introduction by Mary Beard and John Henderson. This was a small book about the study of ancient Greek and Rome culture. It was very clevery written, being based around a small temple in the countryside of Greece.

If I was one those ex public school boys I would have known all about the classics, perhaps before I reached my teenage years. I now know a little bit more-- better late than never. I now want to go to the British Museum to look at all the looted statues from ancient Greece.
