Ancient Greece

"We're all Greeks. Our laws, our literature, our religion, our arts have their root in Greece." - Shelley

It's a well documented fact that the influence and impact of Ancient Greece on the modern world is immesurable. This is why Ancient Greece is called the birthplace or cradle of Western civilization. The civilization of ancient Greece flourished more than 2500 years ago but the ideas of the ancient Greeks continue to influence the way we live today.

Ancient Greece produced magnificent achievements which still influence our lives in the areas of government/democracy, sciences, philosophy, art, architecture, amongst many others. The ideals of freedom, individualism and democratic forms of government were developed in the Greek city-states in their most mature form to that date during the 5th and 4th centuries BCE.
