Did you know that ancient Greek men did athletics in the nude (and didnt let girls watch?) What were the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World? Who was Eric Bloodaxe? How many Egyptian pharaohs were there? How many pyramids? Who liked to eat boiled ostrich? What is a hippocamp? Did you know that the Romans favourite sauce wasnt tomato ketchup, but rancid fish? Can you name the Twelve Olympian gods of ancient Greece? Can you list ten top facts about cats in ancient Egypt?
