Hi there, modern world! Welcome to Ancient Greece- it started around 1100 BCE.
And it was located in southeast Europe, by the Mediterranean Sea. Greece was divided into city-states.
The Greeks were Polytheistic. This means that they worshipped more than one god!
If we don't worship them they will get mad at us and make our lives miserable.
They worshipped the gods by making sacrifices, performing ceremonies, and doing traditional rituals. The priests would represent and talk to the gods.
Some people in Ancient Greece had barely any rights, or no rights at all!
The higher class was the rich citizens born and raised in Athens. They had a lot of rights and freedom.
Yes, these were the slaves. It was all because of the social hierarchies. The slaves and the lower class had almost no rights, but the middle class had some.
Laws in Ancient Greece were very harsh, some were even considered unfair!
The people in the assembly decided what would happen with the person who broke the law. If the majority of the assembly voted so, a citizen could be banished form their city-state for up to 10 years!
In Ancient Greece, the father was the man of the house. They did not eat with the rest of their family, they ate with their friends. Also almost every family had a slave!
Women weren't allowed to leave the house without a man or a slave. They just stayed home and did the housework. Most girls got married by the age of 13. Also only boys could go to school.
Did you know that the Ancient Greeks started the Olympics in 776 BCE?
Wow! really? They were also the first to perform theater, and were very advanced in math and science!
