Adventures in Ancient Greece


The disclaimer on the opening page states that the site was developed "for children aged between 7 and 8"—which would explain the large graphics and the rather simplistic explanations. However, it is a highly interactive, easy-to-read exploration of ancient Greece introducing young learners to the location of Greece on a world map, to Athens, to Sparta, and to the gods and goddesses of Mount Olympus.
