Readers may be familiar with the astounding innovations and ideas developed by the Ancient Greeks. They may not know, however, how truly repulsive some of the practices of the Ancient Greeks were. Be prepared for stomach-churning descriptions of the plumbing and hygiene of Ancient Greece, not to mention culinary delights like goat lung and brain omelets. Medical practices that would not be approved by the FDA today, such as bloodletting and vivisection, are also detailed. This totally disgusting--but entirely fun--volume will have students wondering what practices from their own lives will one day be described as "totally gross."
