And last I have a topic called "how greek culture survived.I hope this flyer helps you understand and learn more about Ancient Greece. Enjoy!

beginning of ancient Greece.

Ancient Greece started between 1900 and 1600 b.c, where the original greeks or "helennes" as they caleed themselves, lived. This country was highly honored and had a highly developed culturrer. Other tribes tried to fight and take on Greece such as the Ionians, Aeolians, and the fair-haired Acheans.1600 to 1900 b.c. were called the helenistic age because the Greeks did not call themselves greeks, they called themselves "hellenes".

greek city states and their colonies.

The area of Greece was made up of large colonies or "city states". THe main colonies were Sparta, Athens, THebes and Argos. THese colinies had one main enemy: a country called Troy. Greece tried and eventually conquered Troy. Athens was the largest population-wise, with over 20,000 citizens.The only seperation for these colonies from each other were mountains that were scattered all over Ancient Greece.

How greek culture surived.

The age of the greeks (hellinestic age) ended all in 31 A.D. The Romans eventually conquered Greece, which had a large war in doing so. The Roman Empire (rome) was a quickly growing country that slowly took over all countries near it. Before the Romans took over Greece, christianity was spreading because Jesus was born, and the Greek Gods were becoming less and less spoken of. however, Greek mythology still survived after the romans took over because the tales of mythology were passed down from generation to generation.

conclusion

So that wraps up my project about Ancient Greece. I have always been interested in this country and it's mythology since I was 7. I hope you learned so much about this wonderful country. Sorry i couldn't get to greek mythology! I hope you liked my project about Ancient Greece.
