Transcript of The Greece
The Greek agora was not only a place to barter for goods, but it was also a place to trade ideas and get information.
Thanks for Listening
The Greek word, Agora, meant- open place of assembly. And that was true, everyone who went to the agora was welcome there. The original Agora of Athens was located below the Acropolis near the building which today is known as The Thesion and open-air markets are still held in that same location today.
In Wavre, Belgium, people go to an outdoor market in the middle of town that is very similar to what people went to millions of years ago.
The earliest archaeological excavations in the Athenian Agora were conducted by the Greek Archaeological Society in the 19th century. Since 1931 and continuing to the present day, the excavations have been conducted by the American School of Classical Studies in Athens.
Without the agora, people back then would not be able to trade as much as they did or get the things they needed. Without the agora, Athens would not flourish as much as it did.
