A day in the life of Sparta

Storyboard Text

  • Hi my name is Agnes and I live in Sparta. This is my daily life
  • This is my older brother Apollo. Everyday he goes to school.
  • At school he learns to read and to write. The teachers were very strict on the boys. If they didn't meet expectations they would be whipped and humiliated.
  • As part of his physical training, he does wrestling and learns to fight with a sword.
  • Instead of going to school, I take part in many physical activities including dancing, gymnastics and my favourite, chariot driving.
  • This is my father Nico. He is lucky enough to be on the Oligarchy, a powerful group of men.
