This video is great because the narrator goes over the different buildings of the Acropolis, not just the famous Parthenon, and what their functions were to the city of Athens. He also goes over the building history of the Parthenon and the several destructions and rebuildings of the Ancient buildings. It gives you the perspective of what the Acropolis looks like now in modern day society.
The Mycenaean civilization flourished in the late Bronze Age, from the 15th to the 13th century BCE and extended its influence not only throughout the Peloponnese in Greece but also across the Aegean(...)
This touches greatly on the similarities of the different Mycenaean centres during their rule of Ancient Greece. these centres included Thebes, Sparta, Midea, Argos and possibly Athens. Every centre had a big palace like building at the city centers. It notes that all the palaces in each city were very very similar noting the middle room were religious worship was held and the side rooms where other matters were dealt with. It also goes over there possible trading partners and the various artwork, from which we get most of our information from.
This site is great to learn about Ancient Greece in general. They give you categories of topics of ancient Greece such as their Architecture their history and culture and their art as well as Archaeological findings. This can really help with any topic that you have given to us.
I enjoyed reading this passage about the Parthenon. It really went in depth with the buildings history even including the names of the main architects and figureheads that helped it come to exist. It stated that the Roman's were inspired by this type of architecture for one of there libraries, going back to what was mentioned in class that Greek architecture has inspired later and modern architecture of all kinds as well. It is a pity that humans were careless during war two or three centuries ago. It used to be the home of several festivals and other religions as well. I found it funny that it was built to honor a the goddess Athena and then when Christianity took over it was used as a building to worship the Virgin Mary, another female holy figure. We are lucky to still have it as it is.

Robert Felix Lindley Jr.'s insight:
I like this video because of how knowledgeable the video's creator is of ancient Greek history. Even though in his monologue he mentions how happy he is that he has this dagger he still goes into the history of the Mycenaean history and culture as well as the background of the knife, like where and when it was made; he said about 100 years before the time of the Trojan war. In his video description he also has a timeline of the Mycenaean and Ancient Greece history and compares the time period where the knife comes from by referencing other events that happened during that time. Even though he supports none of his information he seems very dedicated to Ancient Greece history and seems a reliable source of information.
Ancient Greece Mythology: Sacred Sites and Religious Places - In ancient greek legends and myths holy and religious sites of greece like temples, monuments and landmarks are reflections of ancient greek society, culture, history, traditions and customs.
This article goes really in depth in the way the Spartans built their buildings and gave us an idea of how Spartans actually lived. They go into their simple way of constructing their homes with dirt bricks and courtyards in the middle of properties. They compared their living style to that of Greek farmers. The Spartans were all about skill and being able to survive so there construction really reflected their way of constructing buildings.
This video and it's description really goes into Mycenaean architecture in the city-state of Mycenae as well as the other city-states that developed over time during or after Mycenaean dominance. It notes the similarities of the different building centres and palaces throughout the ancient city-states of Greece. It also goes back to the Minoan influence on the Mycenaeans regarding art and architecture and how this was passed by the Mycenaeans to the other city-states of ancient Greece like Athens and Argos and Sparta.
It is a unique idea attempted to be created as a cultural center based on ancient Greek architecture, philosophy and history. The center has been visited by 3,000 children from Greece and abroad during the last four years.
The replica of the Philosophical center of Hippocrates is very beneficial in my opinion. It is pretty much an exact replica and people visit this place every year by the thousands. It is very educational and can teach a lot of youth and older people as well a lot about the ancient Greek way of life as well as philosophies and other ideas that were had in a structure similar to this thousands of years ago. This technique should definitely be taken advantage of by other places in order to have more people learn more about history.
