First published in 1931, this book contains the second volume of Sir William Ridgeway's history of the culture and practises of the early Greeks. Ridgeway uses a number of ancient sources from literature and archaeological findings to demonstrate various Greek social and cultural mores arose, such as traditions surrounding kinship, homicide and marriage. Contemporary ethnic groups in Ireland are also discussed as a point of contrast. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in ancient Greece and the genesis of the Greek people.
