Summary:
In the 5th century BC, one man leads his city to greatness and paves the way for western civilization. The city is Athens and Pericles is not a King or prince, but an elected man. He will mastermind the most costly and ambitious construction campaign undertaken in the western world--creating a model city of temples, houses, market places, civic buildings and a highly innovative sanitation system. But Pericles' decision to raid the Greek treasury and take the money set aside to defend all the city states will lead to the downfall of Athens and Pericles himself. It took 30 years to build, but it was brought down in one generation by war and disease. Now, 2500 years later we restore Athens to its former glory; the first senate house; the terrifying power of the Greek Navy; and one of the most advanced water systems in the world. We also reveal the magnificence of the Parthenon--a building often hailed as the most perfect building ever completed.
