3: The Beginning -------------------------- In the beginning when Greece began. Which would be the start of a new place. A place were new things would begin. Where new things will be used all through time. Well... I would hope that we would still use something from Ancient Greece. Back to the point Ancient Greece is a new place and we would hope this place would succeed.

5: City-States ---------------------- After the Greek dark ages, exciting things began to happen in Ancient Greece. Villages started to band together to form strong trading centers. These groups of villages that banded together were called city-states. Soon, hundreds of city-states had formed in Ancient Greece. Ancient Greece had the city-states of Athena, Sparta, Persian Empire, Asia Minor, Thebe, Corinthians, and even more.

6: Ancient Greece Government -------------------------------------

7: City-states in Ancient Greece had their own form of government. Athens was a democracy, only men that were born and their parents that were also born in Athens were citizens. Athens Leader was voted in by the people. The Spartans were Oligarchy. Only the rich men were citizens. The Corinthians were ruled by a monarchy. See they did have their own form of government. Greece was a governmental place. City-States mostly tied in with their government no matter what.

9: Religion --------------- Religion was very important to Ancient Greece. They believed that it would make their lives better. They also believed the gods would take care of them when they died. So they did all they could for the gods. They wanted to be taken care of when they died.

11: Social Classes --------------------- Ancient Greece had Imperial Domus, Senators, Equestrians, Commons, Free People, and Slaves. The most information you will get about social classes is in Athena. Social Classes will also tie in with their government. Social Classes in Greece were important like their religion. They had to have them for battles and government.

13: Climate ------------------ Greece has very hot, dry summers. Rain only falls in winter. This restricts crops in many areas to grapes and olives and the animals to sheep and goat. However there are also rolling plains that are ideal for growing crops like wheat and barley. Greece is made up almost entirely of mountainous land with only small areas of lowlands. The mountains are beautiful but made it hard to farm and make a living. They also made it hard to travel. The mountains divided the cities in Ancient Greece and each city had it's own customs and ideas.

15: Travel -------------- Traveling in the ancient world was much tougher than it is today. Ancient Greek transportation was some of the most advanced of the era, but there were still many problems with their method. The ancient Greeks traveled by foot, cart, chariot and ship. The ancient Greeks traveled by the sea because the land was to mountainous to travel by foot.

17: Food -------------- Breakfast was eaten just after sunrise. They had bread dipped in wine. Lunch is also bread dipped in wine along with some olives, figs, cheese, dried fish. Supper was the main meal. It was eaten near sunset. They ate vegetables, fruit, fish, and honey cakes. Sugar was unknown to Ancient Greeks so natural honey was used as a sugar. Fish was the protein. Beef was very expensive so it was rarely eaten. Beef and pork were only available to poor people during religious festivals.Wine was the main drink. It was watered down. Milk was rarely drank. Milk was used for cheese. Water was another choice of drink. The Greeks did not have any eating utensils so they ate with their hands. Bread was often used to scoop out thick soups. Bread was also used as a napkin to clean hands. After being used as a napkin the bread was then thrown on the floor for the dogs or slaves to clean up.
