Greece's Golden Age!

A Century of Luxury!

What was Greece's Golden Age?

Greece's Golden Age started in 546 B.C.E., beginning with a brilliant victory for the Greeks over imperial rule of Persia. Also called the "Periclean Age," Greece received a high status in persuasive culture and politics. During this time Greece achieved large amounts of success in the fields of government, philosophy, art, drama and poetry. By accomplishing this, the Golden Age showed the birth of democracy in Athens. World-famous philosophers nearly ended the traditional thought processes of humanity. The Golden Age lifted architectural imnovations such as the Parthenon art and sculptures that are still viewed upon highly as centuries go on. Unfortunately, the Peloponnesian War which lasted from 431 to 404 B.C.E. caused Greece's Golden Age to decline, ending the Greeks' imperial rule over Persia.

Greece had also excelled in several fields.
