How did the ancient greek civilization begin?
The earliest Greek people were the Minoans. They lived on the island of Crete 3000 years ago and their civilization lasted for 2000 years. Greece is a peninsula that is easily accessible by boat. This feature made it an ideal place to settle and because the Minoans were trading with other countries, Greece was well known.
