ANCIENT GREEK CIVILIZATION
Early Greek developed as small independent communities, they got all of the best land by competing against other neighbors in either a skirmish or for a price. All of Greek city/states civilizations evolved a very strong identity that could be recognized if you saw them. Greece was located in Asia. The first Greek settled in Ionia. The Greeks where the first humans to invent writing which they thought of as a secret code of communication. This helped them deliver messages that their enemies could not read. Ancient Greeks army known as the Spartans also lead to the success of this civilization because it could protect their civilization from any other groups that may cause a threat. Also Ancient Greece kept a timeline which helped them to remember important events and learn more about their history. Many wars against the Trojans and the Dorians changed the course of this civilization because it made other civilizations be scared to fight against them because of their dominance of war. This was a big deal back then to have an army this big because you could control your enemies and make them work for you. Priests were very important to the Greek because they would try to gain favor of the god. Priests also led any religious ceremonies where villagers would come and pray to their god or worship them. The Ancient Greek also had meetings called assembly's where the whole town would meet and discuss certain topics. The army of greece named the Spartans were the Greeks army who would defend them form enemies. They were known for their bravery and their honor as soldiers. There is a rule in Ancient Greece that every year the civilization would vote on one person that would get banished for 20 years or more depending on the number of votes that person got.
Greeks invented a lot of things that had special importance for them. Greeks didn’t have alphabet so they just expressed their thinking by speaking. On BC5, they made alphabet which sounds like phoenicians that we still use today. Greeks had good knowledge in architecture. They sorted architecture by kinds of columns which are called Doric, Lonic, Corinthian and vocabularies what we still use today.
The legacy of Greek civiliazation are writings, coins, olympics, architect knowledges, acting, theater and sculptures. The Hellensistic age offered scientific knowledge which still influences. Greek influenced our way of life today a lot. In modern Greece they still use almost same writings. We held olympics which came from ancient Greek civilization. The inventions also impacted in arts and architectures.
There a lot of myth that shows ancient Greeks lifestyle. One is there was a hero who could build anything and master of crafting, “Daedalus.” I inferred that Greeks had a good skills in crafting. Most Greek stories usually royals just had parties and didn’t govern very well. In the myths, many of them had setting in sports competition. I inferred that royals didn’t play a role to citizens and sports were popular.
That is the ancient Greek coin, they used it for money
