Introduction

My research project was about Ancient Greece. My first topic is about the various types of government. My second topic is about Athens rise in power. My last topic is about slavery in Ancient Greece. I hope you learn something new about Ancient Greece.

Various types of government

In Ancient Greece there were three types of government. The first type of government was the Monarchy. A Monarchy was headed by a King of a Queen. Monarchy gave away to Oligarchy. Oligarchy was ruled by a few which were the well born. Oligarchy fell and out of the few one them rose up. That type of government was called Tyranny. The Tyrants were the stepping-stones to a democracy.

Athens rise in power

Athens was the richest and the most powerful city-state in Ancient Greece. Athens fleet became the instrument by which the Persiuns the were finally defeated in battle of Salamis. Athens was trans formed from a a provincial city into imperial capital. Athens was popular with slaves.

Slavery in Ancient Greece

Athens state rested on foundations of slavery. In Ancient Greece two - fifth of the population is slaves. Slaves labor produced much of the wealth that gave citizens of Athens time and money to pursue art and learning and to serve there state. Slavery in Greece was a peculiar institution. Kidnapping boys or men in other Greek city-states was another steady source of supply.

Conclusion

What I learn from Ancient Greece was that the Athens were defeated in the battle of Salamis. What I liked about Ancient Greece was that Kidnapping boys or men in other Greek city-states was another steady source of supply.
