Greek Cultural Contributions
We see Greek influence in architecture today in important buildings. The White House, Capitol Building, Supreme Court and the Lincoln Memorial all have columns that show Greek influence.
We see Greek influence in our government today. we have a democracy, and once you are a certain age (18) to take part in the government. We also have a term limit for how long our rulers can rule.
Greek sports are reflected today through the Olympics. We have many similar events that they had in ancient Greece including javelin, shot put, running, long jump, and horse racing.
Ancient Greek mythology is reflected in many things such as the Percy Jackson books the Percy Jackson movies, the movie Hercules, and we study it in school today.
Ancient Greek philosophy is reflected through the science of today. We use the pi theory in mathematics. Doctors use part of the perocrotic oath, and we study geometry.
