    I may not have taken Classical Studies at school but the last four days I feel like I have been told enough to last a lifetime.

    ... Boys remained with their mothers until the age of 7 at which time their mother would give them to the army. At the age of 16 the boys underwent vigorous testing to determine whether they were worthy of the title Spartan. One of the tests was to place a baby fox under their clothes and keep it there with no reaction to what it was doing. There is a case of one boy who was eaten alive but showed no ...
