Lords of the Sea

Lords of the Sea

Athens is considered an early cultural center for music, art, politics and philosophy, but its success relied on one of the more ancient arts — seafaring. In his new book, “Lords of the Sea: The Epic Story of the Athenian Navy and the Birth of Democracy” University of Louisville professor and archaeologist John R. Hale discusses the Greek Golden Age, democracy and the dependence on Athenian naval power. Poseidon may be the Greek god of the sea and protector of all waters, but according to Hale, Athenians were not only the true Lords of the Sea, but the innovators of modern political thought. Join us Monday on State of Affairs.
