All About History - - TIME TRAVELLER’S HANDBOOK -

Mil­i­tary training

War­rior training favours the rough and tumble. Bare­foot and near-naked, Spar­tans are taught to live off the land and become masters of hand-to-hand and armed com­bat.

re­li­gious rit­ual

The Spar­tans hon­our the god Carneus with Carnea, a na­tional har­vest festival and sus­pen­sion of mil­i­tary op­er­a­tions. The festival be­gins with an ath­letic dis­play and cul­mi­nates with the sac­ri­fice of a ram.

Metal work

While you won’t enjoy the same rights as other Spar­tans if you become a pe­ri­oiko black­smith, your work forg­ing weaponry will be vi­tal to Sparta’s mil­i­tary might.
