Ancient Greece - A Time Of Great Cities And Lives

Ancient Greece
A Time Of Great Cities And Lives


Ancient Greece was an interesting time and place with huge markets in

which people could sell items of every kind. Strict laws with even stricter

penalties if broken, a place where women were did not have as many rights as they do today,

and along with the most outstanding army in their time. A quote that goes along with this

time is; "I have killed one I have killed two -- the vampire who said he was youo." -

Sylvia Platts.

Likewise in the Ancient Greeks so called modern civilization, which has often

been compared with the Nazi Germanies ethics of male domination. very cruel

and yet enticing time to be alive.

"Get your pots and pans..." Compared to today Ancient Greece was a

city far ahead of its time and possibly the time in which people now live.

Down in the streets of there was always someone willing to buy, trade or sell

anything that you had or desired. With Ancient Greeks booming economy it\'s
no wonder that it attracted almost one quarter of the worlds

businesses and various smiths. These included bronze smiths, tanners and

potters. It is no wonder that Ancient Greece was in its time considered the

beginning of the of a new era that would be recognised as the centre of the

worlds economy and was to be home to more than twice as many shops and

people than the city already held.

described as a place where women\'s freedom was restricted and their lives

were restricted to that of a slave in some cases but was really no

world in which a man could do what he pleased to a certain extent of the law.

Which is better than today due to women\'s rights movements and decency laws

that have been implemented in the past years. It also would have been

interesting to see how the women really were treated instead of from books and

and assignments.

Along with all of the amazing feats that Greeks accomplished it is of no

surprise that they had one of the strongest and most feared armies in all of

the world in its time. Of all the battles and wars that the Ancient Greeks

army had engaged in there was always a plan of attack, just like in today\'s

armies. Today\'s armies might have even adapted some of their strategies

from the Greeks. It is also fascinating on how they praised war heros like

Hector and Achilles both from the Trojan War.

Ancient Greece, a place with markets in which people could sell items

of every kind, strict laws with even stricter penalties if broken, a place

where women were did not have as many rights as they do today, and along

everyone even the poor had food to eat, water to drink, people to protect them

while they slept and plenty of wonders to behold from the great architecture

right down to the shops and smiths at every turn. Ancient Greece, what an

interesting time of great cities and lives.
