Storyboard Text

  • Because traveling by land through the mountains was very hard for the Greeks, and because they Mainland Greece is a peninsula made up of smaller peninsulas, it was easier for them to travel by sea. 
  • Farming wasn't easy in the mountainous land, so Greek farmers created wide earth steps into the hills for planting. The shortage of good farmland sometimes led to war between Greek settlements too. 
  • After the Greeks couldn't make enough food for all their people, they migrated by sea to different lands to create colonies. They established colonies from 1000 to 650 BCE
  • Greeks also relied on the trading among each other to get needed goods. They traded among the city-states, with Greek colonies, and in the wider Mediterranean region. Olive oil and pottery from the mainland were exchanged for grain, metal, and timber.
