Ancient Greece By Kelly Mass AudioBook Summary
Thanks to ancient Greece, we know more about philosophy, politics, the democratic system, mythology, art, the Olympics, and many, many lingual references imbedded in almost every European language. Ancient Greece has had a significant impact on many concepts we still hold true today.
Ancient Greece was a northeastern Mediterranean society that existed from the 12th-9th centuries BC till the end of classical antiquity (c. advertisement 600). It was made up of a loose collection of culturally and linguistically associated city-states and other areas that were only combined once, under Alexander the Great’s empire, for 13 years (336-323 BC). Classical antiquity was quickly followed by the Early Middle Ages and the Byzantine period in Western history.
Whether you watch a movie with Brad Pitt or go through an informational book like this one, learning about the ancient ways of the Greek when they were truly influential, is something that can help you appreciate where so many things came from, what we believe these days, and how science and history have developed over time.
