Myths, Games and Conflict

Allan Brooks

The Greek Myths described what the ancient Greeks believed about their history, their ancestry and their gods. The myths were rooted in a real world, a compact physical environment of inhospitable, rugged mountains separating small agricultural plains, that occupy what is now central and southern Greece. Myths, Games and Conflict is an exploration of that landscape and of the myths themselves. Allan Brooks has spent twenty five years exploring rural Greece. In this book he brings the myths and their settings together in a format designed for the independent traveller.
