History in 3 acts: a brief introduction to Ancient Greece 

History in 3 acts: a brief introduction to Ancient Greece  | Klassieke talen | Scoop.it

Ancient Greek history is conventionally broken down into three periods: Archaic, Classical, and Hellenistic.  By dubbing one period of history as “Classical,” scholars imply that the other two periods are inferior, simplifying the Archaic age as a mere precursor to, and the Hellenistic age as a lesser descendant of the Classical age.

Independent scholar and translator Robin Waterfield argues that each of these three periods should be given equal weight within the study of Ancient Greece. The following extract from Creators, Conquerors, and Citizens introduce the key components of each period.

Fly Over Delphi, the 'Navel of the World', in this Drone Video  | Klassieke talen | Scoop.it
Blending harmoniously with the superb landscape and charged with sacred meaning, Delphi in the 6th century B.C. was a religious centre and symbol of unity in the ancient Greek world.

A place with a rich intangible heritage, Delphi was the centre of the world (omphalos) in the eyes of the ancient Greeks: according to myth, it was the meeting point of two eagles released by Zeus, one to the East and one in the West.
