Did the Ancient Greeks Really Think Archers Were Cowards?

One of my favorite bloggers is Spenser Alexander McDaniel, who is a young man still in college studying classics. He blogs about things historical and this post caught my eye. I recommend it (Did the Ancient Greeks Really Think Archers Were Cowards?) to you if you are interested and his blog also.

He writes very, very well for one so young. He does quite a bit of debunking of the stories we tell ourselves about ancient peoples and the more I read his posts, the more “just like us” these people become. Granted they had quite different beliefs and attitudes, but otherwise the ancient Greeks, Romans, Persians, Hebrews, etc. would fit into our modern spectrum of peoples quite easily.
