Transcript of Meeting Basic Needs in Ancient Greece

The ancient Greeks got food by farming, fishing, hunting, gathering and trade. Some food that the Greeks grew were grapes, peas, lentils, onions, garlic and cabbage. They raised chickens to get eggs and they raised goats for milk. The Greeks had no sugar so they used honey to sweeten foods.
The main piece of clothing that Greek people wore was called a chiton. It was just a big rectangular piece of cloth. It was wrapped around the body and pinned over the shoulders. In cold weather, a cloak called a himation was worn over the chiton. People also wore hats to protect their bodies from the sun.
Homes in Greece were built from materials found in nature. They use windows to cool the house down and charcoal was burned in braziers to heat the house. Homes were lit up by lamps. Only a few Greek homes had bathtubs. There were also courtyards, which were used for many daily activities.
