During these exciting years the great festivals were established, monumental buildings were erected, the population grew rapidly and there was lively progress in all the arts.

This study considers the artistic, archaeological and literary evidence for the period. Athens is seen largely through the eyes of Herodotus, the Father of History, and we can observe the foundations being laid for the growth of democracy in the following century.
