Cynia Sapp's curator insight, February 24, 11:54 PM

The Parthenon was a building that was built and was burned by the Persians at around 480 BCE. The foundation was made of limestone and marble. It is a beautiful piece of architecture, and it is great because it is still standing.

From the picture of the stadium it does appear that even small voices can easily echo. However it seems odd that only about three actors were allowed to perform in each play.

Kelsey Cherise Quates's curator insight, April 17, 6:14 PM

It is interesting and wonderful that many people continue to carry the same principals and techniques as the Greeks. There music and acting gave birth to so many forms of genres over the centuries but didn't really start showing up till much later in human history.

What Didn't Ancient Greeks Eat and Were So Clever?
Greek Reporter
Modern science has repeatedly studied ancient writings to find more about the diet of ancient Greeks and to answer a seemingly simple question: Why were ancient Greeks so clever?

Via Jeanette Vetree Symonds
Kristine Rapisura's insight:

How were the greeks so healthy? They believed a healthy body means a healthy mind. They didn't know what was wheat/ bread that consisted of gluten. Gluten makes the brain sleepy and tired to function throughout the day. What they had instead was "Zea, a cereal rich in magnesium" making the brain more alert.

claudia patino's curator insight, February 20, 4:48 PM

Ancient Greeks would not consume meat and cultivating vegetables was common. After watching the documentary Forks Over Knifes I know that eating meat speeds up cancer cells in the body to grow. So the Greeks were so healthy by consuming all the healthy foods. They were clever by eating zea and hippophaes, both health foods.
