Heritage of the Ancient Greeks

The culture of the Greeks had began before the city-states and it survived long after the Greeks lost their independence. Almost all of the Greeks power went to the peninsula in the 5th century B.C. In everything the Greeks did they surpassed everyone else. The arts of the Greeks were singularly free of exaggeration. Greek artists and philosophers were known as teachers in other lands when the Greeks Golden Age went over the peaks.

Daily life in the Age of Pericles

The people of Athens were once slaves but the lived simple lives. They ate two meals a day which almost always had bread, vegetable broth, fruit and wine. Their houses were made of sun-dried bricks and the houses sit on narrow, winding streets. The woman had to stay home and do the work inside of the house. The men had to do stuff out on the farm or in the city.
