Another reason, why I have always found ancient Greece history fascinating is because they were such well develops cities in their ancient times.  While other cities around them barely had a stable system to run their cities, most of Greece by then has a well establish economy, military, and government.  Investigating artifacts and scrolls has given a small glimpse of their everyday life.  In cities, such as Athens, men were the only citizens while women were not; women were to be at home and bear chidrens.  About a quarter of the population were slaves that were prisoners of war from the battles the city won, and these slaves were the ones that sustain the economy by doing the labor work.  Most of the Greek life were enjoyed by art, philosophy, food, and other entertainment.

Amazing how archeologist from other countries want to search answers from other countries history. An example is how Americans are in excavations in Greece. I have a great respect for the Greek for inventing many ideas and culture that I witness in the states.

This briefly talks about the two major group of real greeks, the Minoans and the Mycenaeans.  There was not a lot of information because they did not document their lifestyle as much.

How greek theaters started by honoring their gods. Such an amazing form of architecture. 

Kelsey Cherise Quates's curator insight, April 17, 2014 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.
