Greece is the best civilization, this is because it has a lot of Gods and things that give the Greeks faith. They also have a great army that only lost a couple of wars. The majority of the time, they had Greece to themselves. The gods protected them so when they had been hurt, they didn’t get worried. They had tons of culture and lot’s of religion. Greece was a warm place and they worked hard for what they wanted. They had a democratic government so the citizens were important to the Government. They still have the same gods and religions today which proves they had strong beliefs. They had lot’s of goods and food so they never ran low and lot’s of other civilizations wanted to trade with them. The Greeks developed medicine, physics, BIology, and math. They developed the alphabet and the olympics, they also formed geometric theories. One of the main things in Greece was art and architecture. They made lot’s of pictures and religious temples. They had different groups and classes. If you were a higher class, you would get a better job. Lot’s of people prefered middle class so they don’t get noticed and stay safe. The rules were not very harsh unless you did something harsh for the consequence. There are many great features in Ancient Greece and I would not have a hard time living there.
