Agamemnon to Alexander the Great

The Greeks: THEY ROSE FROM NOTHING AND CHANGED EVERYTHING

* GOVERNMENT * PHILOSOPHY * SCIENCE * COMMERCE *

The ancient Greeks changed the world in about 1,000 years flat.
People talking about the greatness of Greece:
Why Them? Why There?
That’s the question!

This was a time in a place when there was a collision of ideas and inspiration and influence that resulted in a truly extraordinary culture.

Spanning 6,000 years of civilization. From the southernmost islands of the Aegean in the Mediterranean to the northernmost mountains of Macedonia. Across the mysteries of time, a picture emerges.

Any civilization that expresses curiosity among its citizenry, that is a civilization that will lead the world.

It is not just things like democracy. It is going deeper. I think the real contribution of the Greeks is the belief in humanity.
