Storyboard Text

  • Spartan Military
  • The Ruling Class
  • Women
  • Sparta was centered around a warrior culture. It had only one occupation, and that was soldier.
  • Initiation
  • Welp, guess we return him to his pare-
  • Nope, too useless. Leave him by the rocks or whatever.
  • Sparta had an unusual system, as it was ruled by two kings, but a 28-member "council of elders" limited their powers.
  • Agoge
  • Spartan women had more freedom than other parts of ancient Greece.  They engaged in athletic competitions, such as wrestling and javelin-throwing, and had singing and dancing competitions.
  • Marriage
  • Infanticide was disturbingly common in Ancient Sparta. A baby would be tested by multiple inspectors and was bathed in wine instead of water.  If the baby was deemed weak, it was left out on a hillside to either die of starvation or be rescued by another family.
  • Wait, why-
  • At the age of 7, children were removed from their parents home to start the "agoge," a training regimen designed to train them into skilled soldiers and moral citizens. At age 12, they were deprived of all clothing save fora red cloak and forced them to sleep outside and make their own beds from reeds.
  • Marriage was important to the Spartans, as the state pushed for more male children for their military. In preparation for the wedding, women had their head shaved, and kept their hair short thereafter.
