How did the ancients treat their pets? What did they do if they needed a quick bite to eat? What sorts of games did their children play? Such details emerge in this compendium of “out-of-the-way” facts and amusing anecdotes, shedding light on daily life in classical Greece and Rome. They Did It First provides a multifaceted look at the ancient world—from the obscure to the surprisingly familiar—by deftly weaving together evidence from written sources and material culture. As the author proceeds through an assortment of topics, parallels between antiquity and the modern world become clear.
