The History Man in Linothorax


A Visit to your classroom from an Ancient Greek hoplite!

A soldier from Ancient Greece will visit your school to help you teach your children about daily life in the classical Greek city-states in the fifth century BC. Topics include:

  • The lives of women
  • The Olympics
  • Slaves and children
  • Life in Athens and Sparta

  • Democracy
  • Work and trade
  • Science
  • The Persian wars

Children can dress in armour, drill to commands in Classical Greek and learn from direct experience about the legacy of the Ancient Greeks.


The Greeks gave us many of our ideas about how to run our country as we do now.
