Ancient Greek Government

Ancient Greece was separated into hundreds of independent-city states, instead of having a single government. Each city-state acted as its own country, with its own government, laws, and customs. a city-state usually included a city, plus its surrounding countryside. Though city-states are very independent, they share a lot of similarities. They worship the same gods, speak the same language, and they all came from the same cultural background. In times of war, city-states even came together to fight the foe.

Ancient Rome Architecture

The Roman actually learned how to use columns and arches from Greeks. The Romans did invent the dome, which is still used today in modern architecture. They also built concrete roads that stretched 250, 000 miles! These roads were used for trading and transporting Roman military.
