Overview

Ancient Greece sowed the seeds that blossomed into modern democracy, philosophy, medicine, science, architecture, and theatre.

Trace the Grecian path as it moved out of the Dark Ages and into the golden age of the city-state; as Macedon rose to power and Alexander the Great began his conquests. Contrast the Athenian and Spartan systems of education, look at the cult of the athlete, and explore society, work, and slavery. Myth, religion, art, words and ideas, and Greece's lingering legacy: these astounding achievements will endlessly enthrall..
