Ancient Greece

The place where for over 9 centuries many small civilizations prospered, fought one another, occasionally got along and thus laid most of the groundwork for today’s occidental culture. From them we inherited the basics of philosophy, art, mythology, part of our languages, mathematics, science, and more. Most of the works they left behind survived the outrage of the centuries, the worthiest of them made their ways into so many books, and from there eventually landed here.
