Short Description

Today, beautiful ruins dot the hillsides in the country of Greece. Some of the ruins are literally thousands of years old. They begin to tell the tale of the ancient Greeks, who built a powerful society that lasted from 600 to 200 BC. Their fates, they believed, were in the hands of hundreds of gods—superhuman gods with awesome powers. But not all these gods were kind. They were jealous and greedy and loyal, just like people. Read more about their incredible stories in these pages. These amazing people were scholars, farmers, warriors, scientists, and artists. They accomplished amazing feats both in technology and philosophy. They invented the Olympic Games, pointed the way to modern medicine, and developed the basic ideas behind modern-day democracy. Inside, find out more about these people ahead of their time.
