Visiting a Farm
Sailing on a Merchant Ship
Starting a Colony
The land in Greece was very mountainous, so there were not too many farms. However, the Greeks solved this problem by making terraces. Terrace farming helped increase the amount of crops produced. Some crops that were planted are grapes, and olives.
Because it was very dangerous to travel on land, the Greeks mostly traveled through water. Their merchant ships were used to carry goods like olive oil and grapes to trade for metal and timber. Even though the ships were good for importing and exporting goods, they were not very fast, so sailing trips could take a very long time. There were no compases, so it was difficult to find a good route.
Greeks had multiple steps when they started a new colony. First, they would consult an oracle for approval. Next, they would gather food and carry a flame. the final step is finding a good spot to settle.
