Ancient Greece
By: Anthony Beckerman and Noah Spencer
As a collection of such stories, mythology is a vital feature of every culture. Various origins for myths have been proposed, ranging from personification of nature, personification of natural phenomena to truthful or hyperbolic accounts of historical events, to explanations of existing ritual.
Zeus: king of all gods and the sky
Hades: Lord of the dead and the underworld
Posidon: God of the sea
Apollo: God of Prophecy, Fine Art, and the Sun

Ares: God of war
Athena: Godess of wisdom and defense
Artemis: Godess of hunting, animals, and childbirth
Aphrodite: Goddess of beauty and love
Dionysus: God of wine, pleasure, festivity
Demeter: Goddess farming and grain
Hermes: God of travel and trade
Hephaestus: God of fire and metalworking and sculpture
Hera: The queen of all gods and goddess of women and marriage

The Olympic Games were closely linked to the religious festivals of the cult of Zeus, they had a secular character and aimed to show the physical qualities and evolution of the performances accomplished by young people, as well as encouraging good relations between the cities of Greece.

Sparta had a strong army that was feared around the world. Athens had a strong navy. Boys who wanted to join the military started training at the age of 7 and did not complete their training until the age of 20 and stayed until they were 60.

The greeks were the first to use
democracy, which happens to be the system of government we use.
Men's Role
The men were the only ones allowed to have jobs, go to school, and vote. They were considered the most important people in ancient Greece.
Women's Role
Women were not aloud to vote, go to school, go into the city, or attend the olympics. Women maintained the household and care for children.
The U.S. has gotten its architecture style from the greeks. The greeks were amazing architects that specialized in temples for their gods. These temples were normally made of marble and had many columns.

Theater began celebrating their gods in festivals and grew to entertainment. They performed on stages in the city. Only men were allowed to watch and perform so men filled the role of women in plays. They performed on special stages that were slanted downward to the crowds so the people in the front row could see. Modern theater originated with the ancient greeks.

Only men were allowed to enjoy the arts.The greeks specialized in many different kinds of art. They were amazing sculptures and architects. They also had many painters.

We got many things from the greeks. You can look around almost anywhere and see something influenced by the greeks. In mythology their heroes in there story's are still rateable to us today. We get our olypics from them. They sldo highly influenced our military. It is not hard to see the resiblance between our archicture and art.
