What sort of work could job-hunters in Ancient Greece expect to find? What might their colleagues be like? The Ancient Greeks could become priests, although not if they deserted the army or were in debt, or doctors, taking an oath to keep their patients' details secret and not to poison them. What were the pay and conditions like for a politician or an architect in Ancient Greece? Which were the most dangerous jobs and which the most high status? Throughout the book, job adverts give an idea of the qualities and
skills needed for each role and there's a verdict at the end to evaluate
whether it was one of the best or worst jobs available. Photographs of
artefacts from the period are married with humorous artwork to bring the
workers of the era to life.
