Nobody knows for sure when the ancient Greeks got their start. But in 1200 BC the Mycenaen civilization collapsed, this lead to years of political change. City-States were made and settlements flourished. Living on a peninsula the skilled fisherman began the civilization. Many steps lead to success for the Greek. Such as the battle for troy in 1200 BC, where the Greek hid in a ‘peace offering’ of a horse, and when the Greek invented the Olympics. The Romans tended to copy the Greeks art and gods.
Greek had a very powerful leader. Although Greece was a democracy, and all of the city-states had little power against each other. But their powerful leader was Alexander the Great. Not only did he have control over all the city-states. But he conquered an empire that reached as far as Afghanistan to India. But in the end scarce resources became a problem too many poor Greeks. They sailed to find new land.
I suppose it was for emergencies for the military uses. The military was very important to the Greeks because they had a great military so that would mean they would be in power that's why it was important to the Greeks. The Greeks communicated in traveling talking and writing down whats happening. They socialized by going out and doing different activities such as the Olympic Games. The Greeks were very smart and advanced for there time.
