Ancient Greece A Time Of Great Cities And Lives
Ancient Greece was an interesting time and place with
huge markets in which people could sell items of every kind. Strict laws
with even stricter penalties if broken, a place where women were did not
have as many rights as they do today, and along with the most outstanding
army in their time. A quote that goes along with this time is; “I have killed
one I have killed two — the vampire who said he was youo.” – Sylvia Platts.
Likewise in the Ancient Greeks so called modern civilization,
which has often been compared with the Nazi Germanies ethics of male domination.
very cruel and yet enticing time to be alive. “Get your
pots and pans…” Compared to today Ancient Greece was a city far ahead of
its time and possibly the time in which people now live. Down in the streets
of there was always someone willing to buy, trade or sell anything that you
had or desired. With Ancient Greeks booming economy it’s no wonder that it
attracted almost one quarter of the worlds businesses and various smiths.
These included bronze smiths, tanners and potters. It is no wonder that Ancient
Greece was in its time considered the beginning of the of a new era that
would be recognised as the centre of the worlds economy and was to be home
to more than twice as many shops and people than the city already held.
Although women in the world today are always talking about
women and their rights and how they deserve to be equal in everything that
they do and -2- receive, it was not a problem to Greeks
in their society which has been described as a place where women’s freedom
was restricted and their lives were restricted to that of a slave in some
cases but was really no different than a women’s freedom in today’s society.
In Greece it was a mans world in which a man could do what he pleased to
a certain extent of the law. Which is better than today due to women’s rights
movements and decency laws that have been implemented in the past years.
It also would have been interesting to see how the women really were treated
instead of from books and and assignments. Along with
all of the amazing feats that Greeks accomplished it is of no surprise that
they had one of the strongest and most feared armies in all of the world
in its time. Of all the battles and wars that the Ancient Greeks army had
engaged in there was always a plan of attack, just like in today’s armies.
Today’s armies might have even adapted some of their strategies from the
Greeks. It is also fascinating on how they praised war heros like Hector
and Achilles both from the Trojan War. Ancient Greece,
a place with markets in which people could sell items of every kind, strict
laws with even stricter penalties if broken, a place where women were did
not have as many rights as they do today, and along with the most outstanding
army in their time. What a great place to live where everyone even the poor
had food to eat, water to drink, people to protect them
-3- while they slept and plenty of wonders to behold from the great architecture
right down to the shops and smiths at every turn. Ancient Greece, what an
interesting time of great cities and lives.
